The 32 second Romeo and Juliet

Time flew in Mrs Milner’s Year 9 English class recently when they all decided that Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ could do with a bit of a ‘trim’ so cut out a few lines and attempted what is known in the business as: ‘The 32 second Romeo and Juliet’. They actually dispensed with over four thousand lines and got it down to about twenty!  

“Who knows what the Bard would think of Fyling Hall’s slimline version but we all had a great time doing it,” said Mrs Milner. 


Sit back, relax with a stopwatch and see if they managed it!
