Synopsis

King Lear: The 30-Minute Shakespeare renders six powerful scenes from this enduring tragedy. Starting with Lear’s banishment of Cordelia, the plot advances irresistibly, featuring scenes of brother Edmund’s villainous plotting and the Fool’s witty, weighty wordplay.

The action climaxes with the storm on the heath, where Lear and Poor Tom rail in exquisite madness. The abridgement concludes with moving scenes of Cordelia’s tender reconciliation with King Lear and their heart-rending demise.

The edition includes helpful advice by Nick Newlin on how to put on a Shakespeare production in a high school class with novice actors, as well as tips for performing the specific play and recommendations for further resources.
