Besides the above plays, there are quite a few places to find complete plays without having to purchase anything, but it can take some time to search effectively. 

One place to try is in our library database Ebook Central. We've done a search for plays that you can link to here.

Outside of our library website, we recommend searching in Project Gutenberg for any of the following keywords: plays drama comedies. All the results you will find there are free to download and are available in different formats (html, EPUB, Kindle).

If there is a specific play that you want and we have it in printed book format in the library, you can place the book on hold and then pick it up.
