Finding Playscripts and other Resources

The Library makes a lot of effort in collecting local and translated playscripts for our collection. If you know of any that you think the library should collect, please send your recommendations to "Suggest a Purchase".

To find playscripts, you can search by play title or author, or the keyword "playscripts".

You can further limit the language to "Chinese" to find the Chinese playscripts.

Combine "Subject" containing "Drama" and "Translations into Chinese" but not "Operas, Chinese" to find plays translated into Chinese.

Other related subject headings include the following:

  • Children's plays
  • One-act plays
  • Tragedy
  • Comedy

For plays of different origins, you can search using:

  • American drama
  • English drama
  • French drama
  • German drama
  • Greek drama
  • Italian drama
  • Japanese drama
  • Russian drama
