If you are looking for an individual play, type the title and last name of the author (if known) into the search box at the main library page.
For example: Neil Simon and Odd Couple
Many plays are published in collections, so don't give up if you don't find it at first. Try typing in the last name of the author followed by the phrase "collected plays" "complete plays" or "complete works" to see if the play may be in a collection of the author's works.
A play can also be published in a collection of plays by many playwrights such as More scenes and monologues from the best new plays (PN2080 .M675 2007) and may not show up under the individual playwright's name in the catalog.
If you don't need a specific play but just want to browse collections or anthologies, you can do a subject search in the library catalog for broad topics such as:
Drama -- collections
Drama -- indexes
American drama -- collections
One act plays
Index to plays in periodicals - Dean H. Keller
Drury’s guide to best plays / James M. Salem.
Film screenplays will be listed under the subject heading:
or you can use the title of the film and the word "screenplay" to find the original screenplay of a movie.
For Television and Radio use:
Index to twentieth-century Spanish plays : in collections, anthologies, and periodicals / Tony A. Harvell.
