Theatre - Finding Plays and Monologues

A guide to finding plays in the library, by Arts Librarian Maryke Barber

Using OneSearch

When searching OneSearch, avoid using "Title" searches. Search the words that make up the title of your play in Books (results will include e-Books).

Search Tips

  • Not sure of the whole title? Search just using a few key words:

    A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
  • Common one-word title, zillions of  results? Add AND + the playwright's last name:

    Wit AND Edson
  • Common multi-word title, still zillions of wrong results? Put exact titles in quotation marks:

    "In the Blood"
