Books on Theatre and Drama in the Library
There is no one location for plays in the library. You will need to search the Library Catalog by play title. When searching a play title use the Keyword search. This will retrieve not only items with the identical title, but also items where that title occurs only in the Table of Contents.
Play texts and criticism are shelved by country, then by period, then by author. For example, Russian literature has call numbers beginning with PG, British PR, and American PS. To find resources on the plays and literary traditions of a particular country, run a Subject search using the adjective form of the country before "drama." For example, American Drama or French Drama.
General works on the Dramatic Arts (Acting, History of the Theatre, Broadcasting, etc.) can be found in PN1600-3307.
