Since Winter Term 2019 the library has been working on collecting all published works by a select list of playwrights. Many of these playwrights are living, currently active artists, and we have continued to add names to this list. You may access the complete list of playwrights here:

Search these names in the library's catalog search box on this page.  If you are looking for plays written by Bill Cain, try typing au:bill cain in the search box.  The au: will limit your search to the author field, which will return materials written by Bill Cain.
