late 1800's - present. (Alexander Street Press) limited to students, faculty, and staff of the University of Texas at Austin fulltext of articles available
Updated regularly. Provides the full text of 2,000 plays written from the late 1800's to the present by more than 200 playwrights from North America. Many of the works are rare, hard-to-find, or out of print. Nearly a quarter of the collection consists of previously unpublished plays.

Each play is extensively and deeply indexed, allowing both keyword and multi-fielded searching. The plays are accompanied by reference materials, significant ancillary information, a rich performance database, and images.

Includes a focus on gay and lesbian theatre, along with plays drawn from the Jewish theatre, American Indian theatre, and other groups. Also provides selected playbills, production photographs and other ephemera related to the plays.
