Covers some 31,000 plays published individually or in anthologies and collections. These are plays written in or translated into English.

Plays can be found by title; author; subject (i.e., divorce, Chinese Americans, brothers); style (i.e., symbolism, experimental theater); genre (i.e., comedy, melodrama, musical); cast type; and more. Includes mysteries, plays in verse, puppet performances, radio and television plays, pageants, and classic drama. Over 600 monologues suitable for auditions or course assignments are also indexed and searchable.

For plays published individually, the publisher, date, pagination, ISBN, and LC number are given. For plays published in collections or anthologies, links to full bibliographic information is provided. Each play record provides a description summarizing the plot and indicates any musical requirements: chorus, singing, dancing etc., along with the number of sets, noting whether scenery requirements are interior or exterior.
