The New Challenge~ Short Puzzle

Lux got in her car and pulled out of the parking lot onto the road. Immediately, she noticed the black sedan with the tinted windows parked by the side of the road. After she passed, it pulled out behind her.

They couldn't be more obvious if they hung a bright red banner that said "Evil people who want the suitcase." They must think she had it on her.

A man on a motorbike came from a nearby side street, and Lux shivered. There was something about him... His aura had an unmistakable feeling of death. Necromancer, definitely.

She made several turns in quick succession, but it wasn't enough to lose them. They were still gaining on her, and now, she didn't know where she was.

The map was on the seat next to her, but she couldn't study it and drive. Besides, it was encrypted.


For your reference, here is a list of Shakespeare plays.

The Tempest
The Merchant of Venice
Much Ado About Nothing
As You Like It
King Lear
Measure for Measure
Twelfth Night
A Midsummer Night's Dream
Richard II
The Two Gentlemen of Verona
Romeo and Juliet

Each play represents a different possible route.

The play you're looking for:
Is set in somewhere in Italy
No one actually dies
Ships (the sailing vessel) do not play an important role in the plot
Does not feature a character by the name of Lance/Launce/Lancelot or any such variation
Contains a jealous brother

First person to comment the correct play wins an extra hint in the upcoming extremely difficult challenge. Happy thanksgiving, everyone!
