In the past the Playwright’s Forum maintained a web portal for members to post a personal profile listing information about their plays. We found that very few members kept the information up to date and that writer’s personal websites got better traffic on search engines. Now we recommend that our member playwrights create simple websites or take advantage of other sites that offer the ability to maintain a list of plays.
If you’d like to post public information about yourself and your work, there are some great free options.
Doollee – A very comprehensive database of plays in English that any playwright can post to.
New Play Database – (still in development) – Will provide a searchable database of contemporary writing for the theater.
Play Database – A large, searchable database of plays available for production.
