|What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5126)|
|"I enjoyed this resource and think there is a lot of merit in it as a piece for a school production. It would be a bit of fun for pupils who have studied the play and know something about the comic allusions that it employs. It could be used as a performance piece for the GCSE in Drama and also as a general piece for school productions." K McLoughlin, Ind. Reviewer|
