Maybe you could first decide if you want a comedy, a history or a tragedy? Then, whichever play you choose there are on-line guides that may help. Eg
or this site that has “plain English” translations.
There are probably lots of others too.
Shakespeare requires some effort but I’ve found it is worthwhile.
As for Macbeth, don’t let bloodshed and witches - not to mention guilt and madness - put you off. Here are a few quotes from Macbeth.
"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, creeps in this petty pace from day to day, to the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
"By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes"
"Sleep that knits up the ravelled sleeve of care, the death of each day's life, sore labour's bath, balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course, chief nourisher in life's feast"
"Things without remedy, should be without regard; what is done, is done"
