I, Shakespeare
Tim Crouch

Here, four of Shakespeare’s most famous plays are rewritten for a younger audience: Twelfth Night, Macbeth, The Tempest, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. They are shorter and told from the perspective of the side characters Malvolio, Banquo, Caliban, and Peaseblossom.

I, Shakespeare might be useful if you want to avoid reading the longer originals but still talk about the plays. It could also be interesting to compare Shakespeare’s and Crouches versions.
