Does this story ring a bell? – Presenting Shakespeare to teens

Imagine your dad had just died? How would you feel? (Obviously be careful that you know the family situation of your students first.)

Now imagine your mum remarried, how would you feel?

She married your uncle (dad’s brother), any thoughts?

Now you find out your dad may have been murdered, maybe by your uncle, what would you do?

Now read Hamlet, I like to start with Playing with Plays’ short version.
