Play Index is an index of over 30,000 plays written in or translated into English that have been published individually or in anthologies from 1949-present. These plays were originally written from antiquity to the present. Indexed plays are in a wide variety of forms, including classical drama, monologues, musicals, one-act plays, plays in verse, radio plays, television plays, and more. This database does not include the full text of plays; it provides citations, indexing, and abstracts only. Each play’s record includes a variety of useful fields, such as cast requirements, set requirements, music requirements, target audience age group, and subjects covered. Each record also includes a brief abstract describing the play’s plot.
This database is the electronic counterpart and continuation of the print publication Play Index.
