The most comprehensive list I know of is:

_Annals of English Drama 975-1700_.  Alfred Harbage, rev. S. Schoenbaum.
3rd edition rev. Sylvia Stoler Wagonheim.  London, 1989.

If anyone knows of a more comprehensive one than that, please let me
know.

Best,
Erika Lin

Thomas Larque asks for a listing of plays: every college and university
library should have a volume called Annals of English Drama: there are a
number of editions, but I like the third, which was originally edited by
Harbage, re-edited by Schoenbaum, and then re-edited by Wagonheim. It
lists every known play, indicates whether the play survives or not, and
gives information about editions. The organization is by year with
extensive indices.

Yoshiko Kawachi, Calendar of English Renaissance Drama 1558-1642 (NY:
Garland, 1986) -- a partial  update of Harbage (and then Schoenbaum),
Annals of English Drama 975-1700 -- gives the name of the play and the
earliest text (or "lost") in the "Calendar."  There is a comprehensive
Index of Plays.

Also W. W. Greg's Bibliography of the English Printed Drama to the
Restoration (Oxford UP for the Bibliographical Society), volume 4, has a
Title Index ("mainly confined to those pieces that have substantive
entries in the present work").  Nonetheless, the entire four volumes are
magnificent.

Yours, Bill Godshalk
