Subject:	Standalone Pieces

Of course, everyone knows that Shakespeare has several plays within a 
play. But can you help refresh my memory. I need several 20-minute 
scripts for only a few actors. I have used the scene in _Henry VIII_ 
where the two cardinals confront Katharine, The Pirates in Henry VI, and 
the actor's subplot in Midsummer Night's Dream. But others like the play 
in _Hamlet_, for example, just don't work as standalone pieces. Where 
else can I excise a 20-minute script and have it cohesive and 
interesting in itself?
