WARNING TO STUDENTS:  While the author attempted to follow Shakespeare's plots as closely as reasonably possible (for parodies), you should not rely on these scripts in a cheesy attempt to avoid reading the original works, while still hoping to pass your examinations.  Without limiting the foregoing, please be advised that  in the original works by William Shakespeare, Ophelia is not a conniving gold digger, Edmund and Edgar are not ventriloquist's dummies, and Lady Macbeth does not turn into a man when she says, "Spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here."
