Theatre Communications Group (TCG) has announced that the TCG Books Play Collection is now live on Drama Online. 110 titles are currently available, and will be joined by a further 90 titles later in 2022.
This collection of 200 plays joins Drama Online’s award-winning digital library, an online research tool for drama and literature students, professors, and teachers.

The collection includes work by Nilo Cruz, David Henry Hwang, Tony Kushner, Richard Nelson, Dael Orlandersmith, Naomi Wallace, and Anne Washburn, among others.
