The plays of William Shakespeare adapted for small casts and

performance times of around one hour to seventy minutes.

These adaptations stay true to the story whilst removing unnecessary

plot lines, characters, and scenes to streamline the play.
Cast lists are reduced with some characters being merged, reduced, or entirely discarded allowing the plays to be performed with as few as 5 or 6 actors.
Scripts are formatted for easy reading with plenty of space for notes and directions to be added.
