      Well faith, that’s a good question! There are 36 plays in Shakespeare’s First Folio collection, and 37 is usually the number of plays attributed to him. However, Shakespeare had a helping hand in many other plays during his period, and is also likely to have written more complete plays that have since been lost.

      Hi Pam, I’m afraid we don’t actually sell the plays in book form – only ebooks that you can’t print out and use as you like!
