Adapted playscript for A Midsummer Night's Dream - suitable for 8-15 year olds.

(0)
A version of A Midsummer Night's Dream that has been adapted so that it is suitable for older primary and secondary children. The play has been shortened so it can be performed in approximately an hour, and some of the more difficult Shakespearean language has been removed or translated. The author has tried to maintain the Shakespearean feeling of the play, by retaining some of the more famous lines in the play, and retaining the rhythm of the language. The aim is to make Shakespeare more accessible to children by translating the play into language they can understand, without losing the charm of the original. This resource could be used to put on a full performance of the play, or as a resource to use in class when teaching Shakespeare. It can also be used in Drama lessons - pupils could act out sections of the play without a full performance being necessary.

Also included in the pack is a breakdown of how many lines each character has - useful when giving out parts! And a list of props and costumes needed for a performance of the play.
