Subject: MND Adaptation for Children?
My sister is a Drama Teacher who works on Saturdays for a small
Children's Theatre Company. She is currently planning to do some work
on "Midsummer Night's Dream" and although she wants to show her young
actors some scenes from Shakespeare's original, she is hoping to finish
with them performing a modern language adaptation of the play.
She does not really have time to write an adaptation of her own, and was
wondering whether anybody knew of an adaptation of "Midsummer Night's
Dream" using modern non-Shakespearean language that would be suitable
for performance by a Children's Theatre Company and for which she might
be able to beg, steal or borrow - or buy - a script?
If anybody knows of such an adaptation, or has written one, my sister
and I would be very grateful if they could get in touch with us - via
SHAKSPER if they think their information may be of interest to the group
at large, or via my personal E-Mail address (
Thanks for any help.
