While most of the images in the new digital gallery are William Shakespeare's plays, other derivative or non-Shakespearean period productions such as Cole Porter's Kiss Me Kate and George Bernard Shaw's Caesar and Cleopatra are also incorporated.

The collection can be browsed by title, year of production, or by genre such as comedies, English histories, romances, Roman plays, and tragedies and can be used as primary resources for the study of theater or Shakespeare.
