Shakespeare's Next Top Fool

FARCE. In this reality-TV show, fools compete for the title of Shakespeareís Next Top Fool. Contestants include the clown from "Othello," King Learís fool, and the gravediggers from "Hamlet." With a stage full of fools, Rosalind and Touchstone have their hands full hosting this show. In addition, the camera crew, consisting of Montagues and Capulets, canít stop fighting. Security guard Nick Bottom keeps trying to take other peopleís jobs. Then the judges begin to disappear. Bianca is dragged off by her shrewish sister, Caesar is called away to the senate, and Macduff picks a fight with Macbeth. A fun way to introduce students to Shakespeare. Easy to stage.
