Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet

By: Robert Herold

Age Level: Middle Grades to College
Cast: 21-35 roles, mixed
Time: About 90 minutes

This modern English adaptation provides a literate and exciting introduction to Shakespeare. No other play deals better with the universal concerns of youth: romantic love, physical desire, conflicts with civil authorities, impulsive behavior, gangs, honor, depression and suicide. A bare stage can be enough for this play of action. Production notes explain staging and discussion possibilities for this play, Shakespearean theatre, suicide, and related topics. Shortened and simplified language makes this version an excellent text for classroom use.
