Visit the Doollee Website for Plays and Playwrights Post 1956

Visit Doollee: a useful British website on plays and playwrights post 1956 (since John Osborne’s major work “Look Back in Anger”) created by Julian Oddy in his spare time.  The website has a database of playwrights which includes brief biographical information, a list of plays and literary agent.  At last count the database included 715 Australian playwrights.  The website lists 60,000 play titles in alphabetical order with author and genre, if known.  There is a database that searches for the number of cast members by gender in a play.  It has listings of literary agents, including agents of Australian playwrights.  There are links to major play publishers and theatres worldwide.  Whilst some of the databases are not well set out such as the “theatres and theatre companies”, it is an excellent resource not readily available elsewhere.
