Walker Library now has access to Drama Online’s video collection! We already had access to the Core Collection, containing over 1,200 playtexts and scholarly works (context & criticism and theatre craft). The new video content consists of 51 videos:
Hamlet the Film, and
Patsy Rodenburg’s Shakespeare in the Present 6 hour masterclass.
Digital archive documenting Shakespeare's Globe, the 1997 reconstruction of the 1599 Globe, from inception through construction and performances from 1997-2016.
The Library's print collection includes many plays in individual volumes, and many more that are published in collections, or anthologies.
To find a specific play use the "Books" option in the library search box to enter the play title, placing quotes around the title, e.g. "raisin in the sun." This will find that title in a stand-alone edition or as part of an anthology. You might also find critical works about the play.
If you don't find the play you need in the catalog try Play Index AND Inter-Play. The catalog records for some anthologies don't include detailed title information but you can find the titles through Play Index or Inter-Play.
These volumes are found on the first floor of the library, near the reference desk
