Tips for finding plays

When looking for plays here in the library, it helps if you think about them as being works of literature. It's easiest to find a play if you either do an author search for the playwright, or do an Keyword search for the title of the play. That will find the play as a separate volume if we have it, but it will also find the play in a collection or anthology.
