20+ characters. Flexible casting. 30-minute version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Condensed script maintains integrity of Shakespeare’s writing. Perfect for middle and high school groups.

This 30-minute version of Macbeth is ideal for introducing students to Shakespeare in class, through scene work, or in a fully staged production. This script maintains the 5 Act structure Shakespeare used for all his plays, and while the language is condensed, the integrity of the writing is intact. This is the story of Macbeth, whose name is so unlucky that people avoid speaking it. It is the tale of a great soldier who is tempted by prophecy to murder the king of Scotland and seize the crown.
