Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9-12-Fifteen scenes, 15 to 25 minutes in length, are presented as motivational pieces for classroom production. Each one opens with a brief description of the play, setting, and characters (two to seven per scene). Wilson has eliminated the subtext (timing, pacing, action, etc.), preferring to leave this to teachers' discretion. Conspicuously absent are selections from Macbeth, which is mandatory reading in most high school curricula. Included are excerpts from Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, Julius Caesar and Othello-all tragedies. The Merchant of Venice is the only offering from the comedies, although even that play is not always classified as such these days. All in all, a meager offering.-Judie Porter, Media Services Center, Portsmouth School Department, RI
