The TCG list is home to a wide range of pre-eminent and innovative writers whose work students and theatre practitioners will be eager to read alongside the other play texts, works of criticism and the growing range of performance video content Drama Online already offers them. As the most prominent play publisher in North America, TCG represents an incredible collection of authors that accounts for 18 Pulitzer Prize-winners for Drama. From long-established giants of American theatre to the most prolific rising stars of contemporary theatre, we are excited about the scope and depth that this collection brings to the ground-breaking Drama Online platform.

Through this exciting new partnership with Bloomsbury Publishing's Drama Online, students and teachers across the globe will have expanded access to the work of TCG authors and playwrights.
