From the Publisher of the English Prose Drama Database, Chadwyck-Healey:

Welcome to English Prose Drama: the Full-Text Database. The database comprises 1653 plays written by 356 named authors and 42 anonymous works.

Editorial Policy

English Prose Drama contains works in English acted on or intended for the stage which are either wholly or predominantly in prose. Dramatic works wholly or predominantly in verse appear in English Verse Drama: the Full-Text Database. In addition to plays, English Prose Drama also covers masques, entertainments, and certain closet dramas. The database includes both original works, and adaptations and translations.

The choice of editions has been made under the guidance of the Editorial Board. Generally, the first authorised edition of each play has been used, except in cases where authorial revision or enlargement renders a later edition preferable.

The entire text of each prose drama is included. Any accompanying text written by the playwright forming an integral part of the work, such as epigraphs, dramatis personŠ and notes, is generally also included, along with commendatory and prefatory poems by both the playwright and others.
