Subject: Midsummer Night's Dream and High Schools
I have a question for those of you who either work with high schools or
have worked with high school groups (in English or Drama or both), or
any of you who have thoughts on this. I am currently working on a
project regarding the pedagogy of _A Midsummer Night's Dream_ and have
run across a fact that consistently, this play is one of the most
performed plays in high schools, ever. Why is that? What elements
about it lend it to being so agreeable to high school productions?
I look forward to your answers.
