I've read 4 so far. All by different people too so I am happy about that!
Rose's updates for RUR got me interested in that and it was well worth it!
I also read The Tempest and A Doll's House, along with a short play by Eidth Wharton.
A Doll's House was an assigned play in my english class years ago, and I enjoyed it more this time, with more experience in life. The Tempest I loved. It has a special place, as that was the play that made me interested in Shakespeare's works.

Bravo!

I didn’t know Aphra Behn wrote plays! I only know her from Ooronoko, which I really liked a lot. (Please excuse spelling. It was a very long day.)

Aphra Behn also wrote poetry and short stories. She also had a very lively life!
