Hey /lit/, first time thread creator here, the thing is, i need recomendations for some short novels/stories to adapt into a play for school, i just started browsing here and reading in the beginning of the year and i've read 1984 and The Stranger so far but 1984 seems kinda dificult to make into a play and The Stranger has some topics and emotions that would be difficult to act and make people understand, please help a /lit/noob out
I am Mexican btw (if that helps)

The Story of O

Luna de Pluton by Dross is the number one book in Mexico right now

Do you live in Texas?

John Dryden's Two Act Play 'The Conquest of Granada' would probably make a big splash there.

Something a little bit less erotic?

It's a meme even for the lowest standards here
>>7672653
No, i'm from actual Mexico, thanks for the recomendation but it has to be a novel and we have to adapt it into a play, it's part of the work that i have to do

"Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?"

Can't think of a novel, but if you can get away with a comic, this one is just begging to be put on stage.

Seize the Day by Saul Bellow

Also, do you guys count plays as books you've read? As if, if you were asked how many books you've read in a lifetime, would the plays you've read be included in that tally?
>>
>>7672565
The Dead. Or really any of the stories from Dubliners. Counterparts is a good one too.
>>
>>7672565
I'd love to see a stage adaption of 'I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream'
>>
Finnegan's Wake would make a great piece of theater.
>>
>>7672565
What the fuck, I literally watched this movie (Fantastic Planet) a few days ago, having never heard of it before, and now I see this. What a coincidence, have you seen it OP?

As for answering your question: Animal Farm seems like it'd be easier to adapt, it could be pretty fun/entertaining too. Or maybe Metamorphosis? Depends on what you're going for.

>>7672565
I suggest tweaking a chapter from Joyce's Dubliners, however like suggested before do not make it the dead. The one about the politicians or about the race would been pretty appropriate, you could maybe even modernise it
