Twentieth Century North American Drama is a growing database of plays created in the twentieth century by American or Canadian writers, focusing in particular on plays of economic, historical, social, and political significance. Also included are associated playbills, posters, production ephemera, information on theatrical companies, and biographical details. The database contains many previously unpublished plays, and aims to include the entire corpus of works by major authors. The collection includes texts and details of plays that subsequently were made into films, and sections devoted to regional theatre and contemporary theatre.
