Teen writes Shakespeare adaptation

MONROE - The Shakespeare play "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is about 90 pages long. For 14-year-old Chris Page, it not only made for interesting reading, but an interesting edit. The home-schooled Monroe student took it upon himself to create an adaptation of the classic for the Shakespeare on the Edge youth acting group, not only condensing the play from about 2 1/2 hours to 1 1/2 hours but making it easier on his acting peers and the audience.
