Our Summer Movie

I've been hard at work on the script for Henry V. Last night I finally finished! It was such a relief. It was tough to keep the soul of the text and still cut in down small enough for kids to memorize. All the lines are still Shakespeare's words- just not in iambic pentameter any more! Some of my favorite parts had to be chopped. There was no way son #2 (King Henry) would agree to trying to kiss our neighbor neighbor girl (Princess Katherine)! It's a final 16 pages, and I think the movie should be around 30 minutes when its done. Now we get to start on the costumes....
