You wake up in the 16th century as the famous playwright and you realise that to make ends meet you're going to need to start churning out the plays. Fortunately(?) you've got a library of 20th and 21st century fiction in your head. What works of fiction would you try to adapt to the big stage?

All of Lovecraft's works

If I woke as Shakespeare I'd get rid of Henry V and then I'd attempt to do the works of Tarentino in true Shakespearean form.

I would write about some guy who woke up as a playwright but was totally disappointed because he really wanted to wake up as a scientist called Einstein

If this happened I would try and find my way back the best I could.

I know enough calculus, discreet mathematics, and statistics to become the foremost mathematician of the age.

Writing new plays would not be on the agenda.

Sorry Isaac Newton; I'm going to plagiarize all your work a couple centuries early.

I'd look into the mirror and ask "self, wherefore has't i becometh the most wondrous bard?" and wait a few minutes for an answer.

I'd grumble that I was four hundred years too early to beat up on Roland Emmerich.

Then I'd interrupt on stage after the first Globe performance of Romeo & Juliet's balcony scene and announce to the audience, "Look, people, 'Wherefore' means WHY!! Don't let me catch any of you getting this wrong hundreds of years later, okay? She's soliloquizing, she doesn't even know he's there!!"
