Act 3, Scene 3 Staged

Work Time

Your teacher will show you a clip from this section of the play. As you watch, pay attention to what you do and don’t find funny.

Afterward, discuss these questions, first with a partner and then with the class.

  • Do you find this scene funnier now that you have seen it performed?
  • Are there parts that you understand better as a viewer than you did as a reader? What were they?
  • Are there places where the film is harder to follow than the text of the play? Where?
