Possibly co-written by Shakespeare, it’s a comedic tale modeled after the famous story of Don Quixote.

Sir Thomas More
Believed to have been co-written by William Shakespeare, it’s the story of Henry VIII’s chancellor, who was executed for failing to arrange Henry’s divorce from Catherine of Aragon.
