Court Theatre play guides focus on the historical context, themes, and artistic process that transforms a literary text into a piece of theatre. Play guides typically include biographies and background, a list of characters, a glossary of terms, a detailed synopsis, and discussion questions.

Court provides these classroom guides free of charge to enhance our education initiatives. Please contact us before adapting the material for a different use. We ask that you credit Court Theatre in any classroom use.
