Complete Coverage of Classic Historical and Contemporary Plays

This unique resource covers classic and historical plays, along with the works of contemporary playwrights. Play Index covers new editions and translations, and includes descriptive annotations to summarize the plot and indicate musical requirements.

Comprehensive Coverage

Play Index contains approximately 34,000 plays—published individually or in collections—dating from 1949 to present time and includes over 600 monologues from playwrights such as Aeschylus, William Shakespeare, Moliere, Anton Checkhov, Tennessee Williams and many more.


My overall impression of the EBSCOhost interface is that it offers something for everybody.
