Black Drama Database, 1850 -

Black Drama 1850 to Present This edition of Black Drama contains 502 plays by 125 playwrights, together with detailed, fielded information on related productions, theaters, production companies, and more.

When complete, the collection will include more than 1,200 plays, of which some 20% have never been published before. The database also includes selected playbills, production photographs and other ephemera related to the plays.

The plays themselves have been selected using leading bibliographies and with the editorial advice of James V. Hatch, a leading expert in this area.

Black Drama uses PhiloLogic software, developed at the University of Chicago, to enable in-depth browsing and searching of both the bibliographic and the full-text elements within the database.

Access to this resource is possible from off campus. Click on Connect for Home for more information.
