Viewing results

After you run a search, you'll get a list of results. Each result tells you what content type it is eg play, genre, monologue etc and gives a short description of the item.

Select the title to open the full result.

So for example, if your result is a content type: genre, you'll get a description of the genre and links to plays associated with that genre. If your result is a play, you will be taken to the overview page for that play with more information about the play as well as a link to read the play.

You can also use the search filter options to narrow your results by content type, genre, playwright etc.
