Shakespeare Performed

The First Opening

Work Time

You will view the opening of the play as interpreted by one director. You’ll probably notice some differences between the opening of the play as it’s written and as it appears in the film.

As you watch, take notes and be sure to think about the following.

  • Did the movie help you understand the play?
  • Discuss the casting of roles. What worked for you, and what didn’t?
  • What differences do you see from the text of the play?
