Since plays are a bit of a novelty here at Smashwords, I thought I'd snoop around and see what everyone else is writing about (for free at least: I have some skits on here but they're embarrassingly expensive). I was pleasantly surprised by "Of Love and Vengeance". The best part about this play is that, despite its Shakespearean flair, it could be realistically acted by a small cast with very few props needed. Get some tights and a sword and you'll be all set.
