Description of the Collection

This collection of 1,172 small-cast one-act plays dating from 1892 to 1992 was assembled by Lewis W. Heniford while he was writing 1/2/3/4 For the Show: A Guide to Small-Cast One-Act Plays [PN6120.05 H46 1995 V.1-2, HASRC (Lane Room), Green Library]. "Small-cast" refers to four or fewer roles in a script; "one-act" means staging the play without an internal intermission. Drawing broadly from history and geography, this collection includes plays for children and adults, plays published alone or in collections, and plays for stage, broadcast, and puppetry.

If you wish to use the collection, please first consult 1/2/3/4 For the Show, and once you have established the name of the playwright and the title of the play you wish to view, take this information to the Department of Special Collections and request that the text be retrieved from the Lewis W. Heniford Collection [PN6120.O5 L49]. However, please note that all titles from 1/2/3/4 For the Show are not necessarily included in the Heniford Collection. Also, individual titles are not listed in Socrates. The Heniford Collection is currently in the process of being organized alphabetically by author. When this is complete, a guide located in the Special Collections' Reading Room will indicate the alphabetical range of each box.
