Subject: 14.1806 Trials in Shakespeare / Seven Ages
Comment:        Re: SHK 14.1806 Trials in Shakespeare / Seven Ages

While we're on the subject of trials / performing scenes, I have a
similar query:

I'm directing the school play this year.  I teach at a high school for
gifted students.  I'm thinking of doing a medley of Shakespeare scenes
with Jaques' seven ages speech as the through line.  While I am not
having any difficulties with lover / soldier scenes, I am at a bit of a
loss for the school boy (MWW 4.1 and LLL 1.1), justice (Merchant, though
I know I'm fudging it) and pantaloon / old age scenes.  I'd welcome any
suggestions...

Thanks!
