I dithered about starting this project for a while, a couple of years actually. So much so, that I’ve borrowed a copy of the Complete Works from a friend…and this ended up sitting on my shelf for almost two years with very little attention being paid to it, apart from a reading two or three plays I hadn’t read before and using the book for reference otherwise.

Anyway, I thought it was time I made a start on discovering the rest of the plays. (I’ll probably skip some of the ones I already know.)
