Welcome to Classic Horror Plays! The following is a collection of plays that are now in the public domain that played a significant role in the early days of the horror genre. From the ghosts of Hamlet to the madness of MacBeth to the graphic violence of Titus Andronicus to the supernatural overtones of Doctor Faustus, all of these tales were early incarnations of the genre we love today. This section is completely interactive and you can rate and/or add your own particular comments about any of the stories inside. In fact, we encourage you to!
