Subjects in this section are only for dramatic works written for the stage. Subjects may be used alone (for individual works or collections by one author) or with "DRAMA / Anthologies (multiple authors)".

Critical works should be assigned "LITERARY CRITICISM / Drama" and any other subjects needed in the LITERARY CRITICISM section (and should not be assigned any subjects in the DRAMA section). Note the existence of the subheading "Shakespeare" in both the DRAMA and LITERARY CRITICISM sections.

Use subjects beginning with "PERFORMING ARTS / Theater" for works on drama as performed on the stage and use "PERFORMING ARTS / Screenplays" for dramatic works written for film or television.
