Pfau Library has a large number of scripts from contemporary and classic plays!

Use OneSearch to locate them.

Do a simple search for the title of the play.

Example:

Imperceptible Mutabilities in the Third Kingdom (appears in an anthology of the author's works)

If the play's title is short or consists of common words, add the author's name as a keyword. For example, to find Beth Henley's "Abundance," try the search: abundance henley
