About this Document
After my students and I read Macbeth, we found the 32-second version online somewhere. Then, we decided to write this one for Hamlet. After reading the play, ask for as many volunteers as the short version requires, then see if they can clearly pronounce and deliver the lines which give the jist of the entire play in 32 seconds or less. It's always fun to review who said the lines, to whom they were speaking, and the significance of the quotes, too. Good review and lots of fun!
