The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 13.0976 Monday, 8 April 2002
From: Ronnie Lakowski <

Subject: Abridged Tempest (Re: Apologies to Jeremy Keillor)
If he has not already done so, Jeremy Keillor may wish to look at the
text/screenplay of the *Shakespeare: The Animated Tales* Version of _The
Tempest_, Abridged by Leon Garfield, with Stanley Wells as Literary
Adviser. The video is 25 minutes long, a manageable length for a
"One-Act" version. The screen-play is pure Shakespeare (heavily cut of
course), except for three short narrative sections.
There is/was a companion book for this video (though I don't know if it
includes the screenplay) available from *Knopf Books Young Readers*.
