Finding Plays

1. Online sources

2. Print sources  

3. Index to Plays

  • Use Play Index (a database) to search for plays of certain criteria, e.g., modern Comedy with female characters

    Tip: identify a play in the Play Index; then search for the play in the library catalogs. You might need to request the play through interlibrary loan, if we don't have it.

**Not every play is published or translated; try contact playwrights directly.

2. Combine keywords for your particular focus, e.g.,

  • Monologues and women

3. Browse titles in the book stacks by call numbers, e.g.,

  • PN2080 for Monologues
