Literature Resource Center

  • Literature Resource Center
    Excellent resource for researching specific playwrights. You'll find complete lists of plays, biographical information, and literary analysis of the author's works.

Who's who and what's what

These resources can tell you who the big names are in theatre-- both on stage and behind the curtain-- provide a history of theatre in different places and times, and give you an overview of theatre and the dramatic arts.
