The Dramatists Guild has created this fully searchable database (affectionately known as the RDO - Resource Directory Online) for their members. Using this tool DG members are able to bookmark listings, set up email reminders and search the resources by a plethora of criteria. It is now even easier for you to submit your play or musical to hundreds of resource listings.

RESOURCE DIRECTORY - PRINT ON DEMAND

When we moved our printed directory to an entirely online platform in 2014, we wanted to provide the most accurate information in the Resource Directory Online, "RDO". The digital platform allows us to update information on an almost daily basis. However, over the past year, our members have often asked for us to offer a printed version. We understand that there's something familiar and comforting about flipping through a notebook and making notes in the margins, therefore we have designed this new 8½ x 11 inch spiral-bound, print-at-your-request edition. We'll still be keeping all updated listings on our website in the RDO, free-of-charge to members.
