5-minute Shakespeare

Our inspiring young English teacher Sharon Lam, herself a CIS alumna, challenged her class to distill Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet into a series of mini-playlets: working in groups of four, they had to use only extracts of the original text, while condensing the action into just five minutes for each of the five Acts of the play. And she gamely undertook to perform Act One herself - on her own.
