Theatre: getting started

plays and theatre history information.

books for acting and theatre research

The Lucille Little Fine Arts Library has a large collection of Acting Editions of Plays as well as books with monologues for all types of actors. Play scripts can be found on the second floor of the Little Library, under the "PR," "PS" and "PT" classifications, near the middle of the shelving.  Monologues can be found under the call numbers beginning with PN 2080.


Check InfoKat Discovery for theatre research material such as monographs (single-authored books) or collections of essays.  Books about theatre production are in the Fine Arts Library.  Many books that are useful for theatre research are located in the Young Library, so check locations carefully.  A keyword search is a good way to start locating books for assignments.  For books that are not in the UK Libraries, search WorldCat and request them through InterLibrary Loan.
