New Scripts


George Mason's plays are currently integrated with the literature collection, so it is difficult to browse the scripts we have by looking on the library shelves. Therefore, we have created a digital collection for you to be able to browse virtually.

Mason Library's Collection of Physical Playscripts

You are able to search within this collection for whatever subject, author, or play you wish. Please note that it can only search for words within the play's record. Some of the play's records are more complete than others. If one search doesn't work, try another. 

See the tutorial below for more details: 



Find DIGITIZED Scripts

You can find thousands of digital scripts through the Mason Search bar on the main page, if you search for the title of the script or the playwright and then filter by "Available Online" and by "Resource Type: Book." 


  • Put quotations marks around the title to ensure that it searches for the complete title (ex. "We're Gonna Die"). 
  • If you are getting irrelevant results, (ex. articles about housing when you search "Rent"), filter by Subject.

If you wish to search in individual databases, which are created with theater artists in mind, and often do not integrate with our catalog search, these are great places to start: 

We also have some excellent collections of female and BIPOC playwrights:
