  1. Hey, this is actually getting easier!
    Richard III
    Merchant of Venice
    Much Ado About Nothing
    (But ask me when I’m in a different mood and I might choose R&J over RIII.)

  2. Richard III / The Winter’s Tale / Hamlet / Macbeth. (But I’m still grieving over the loss of Lear, the greatest play ever written—in the weirdest result since Trump-Clinton.)

  3. R&J (I’m teaching it is, so it feels a bit traitorous if I don’t pick it. Lol)

    Winter’s Tale

    Damn I’m this is now hard! Hamlet, I suppose

    And Macbeth
