Playing Scenes from Classic Literature
Short dramatizations of the world’s most famous literature

Adapted by Joellen Bland


Cover of
This rich collection of 68 scenes from 54 famous authors reflects more than 30 years of experience Joellen Bland has had skillfully adapting scenes from the classics.  From Dickens to Bram Stoker, from Louisa May Alcott and Jane Austen to Henry David Thoreau and Robert Louis Stevenson, these scenes may be read for pleasure, used to enrich literature classes, acted out in performances, or practiced for auditions and acting exercises.  The broad selection includes 16 monologues, 20 duet scenes, 16 scenes for three, and 18 scenes for four or more.  The scenes are short — five to ten minutes — and is prefaced with a short description of the events preceding and surrounding the scene itself.  Literature teachers especially will love bringing to life the characters and a scene from some of the world’s most famous literature.
