Scene Database


This database is designed to help students find quality scenes for classwork, all of which have been reviewed and recommended by our faculty. While this is a great place to start, it is not an exhaustive guide and does not replace the process of discovering works on your own. This list contains a diverse array of classic and contemporary voices and will continue to grow as further works are recommended by both our staff and students. Click on the playwrights to learn more about them and their work, or filter scenes by genre, casting or breakdown to output a list of plays that might interest you.
