Playing Scenes From Classic Literature


Short dramatizations from the best of world literature by Joellen Bland. The most fascinating characters from world literature step from behind the printed page into living portrayals for the stage or classroom. Key moments from the classics are seen and heard in dramatic form. Long John Silver, Sydney Carton, Jane Eyre, Huckleberry Finn, Elizabeth Bennett, Jean Valjean, Don Quixote, Jo March, Cyrano deBergerac, and Hester Prynne perform “live” in monologs and short scenes. Each scene in the book is preambled by a short description of the events preceding and surrounding the scene itself. The book’s many scenes may be used for acting classes, literature classes, rehearsal work, and auditions
