Welcome to Audio Drama

Audio Drama: The L.A. Theatre Works Collection delivers, for the first time online, more than three hundred important dramatic works in streaming audio from the curated archive of the nation’s premiere radio theatre company. The plays - which include some of the most significant dramatic literature of the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries - are performed by leading actors from around the world and recorded specifically for online listening.

New iPhone/iPad apps are now available that showcase great Shakespeare performances by LA Theatre Works!

New in this release: Over half of the plays in the database now have additional indexing at the track level, linking individual segments of the plays to specific academic disciplines and subject keywords. This allows researchers to find relevant scenes that touch on subjects in the humanities, social sciences, theatre, hard sciences, law, medicine, and virtually every other field of study.

This release includes 302 plays and is growing regularly. More »
