1927 - From the Preface: Many of Shakespeare's plays contain parallel plots, or main and subplot, or scenes, which, with a little editing, have a clear dramatic interest even when isolated from their context. It is such plots and scenes, which have gone to make these little plays, which are intended primarily for acting, as finished productions in the school hall or informal ones in the schoolroom. But it is hoped that they may serve other purposes. Often, towards the end of term, when the Shakespeare set book has been carefully studied, something is wanted to occupy a few odd lessons. There is not time to embark upon a five-act play, and the reading of isolated unedited scenes has its obvious disadvantages. A little play may satisfactorily fill the gap, and add interest to the one studied in detail. The little plays may, again, serve as an introduction to the serious study of Shakespeare; they may be used on Shakespeare nights of the literary and dramatic society; and they should prove helpful in classes where the study of English literature presents difficulties.
