Costume notes
Irreverent verse play, told by the protagonists and by narrators with the action mimed. A good introduction to Shakespeare's story! (The specified run-time is the minimum - banquets, battles and bopping will add to the run time!)
The Scottish Play - or 'Kids in Kilts' The complete story of Shakespeare's Macbeth (witches, murder, walking trees, revenge - that sort of thing) told as a verse play for kids. [Note that there is also a musical version of this play, called (with great enterprise) The Musical Scottish Play. It is identical except that six original songs have been added.]
