Faber and Bloomsbury create Drama Online
Bloomsbury and Faber are to jointly develop a digital content platform providing online access to drama texts.

Drama Online will launch in October 2012, and will feature the drama lists from Methuen Drama, Arden Shakespeare and Faber and Faber, including play texts and critical works. It will be sold via subscription and perpetual access to academic institutions. 

Users will be able to search through full texts, have access to textual notes, view parallel texts on screen, and the collection will be continually updated as new titles are released.

Chairman and c.e.o. of Bloomsbury Publishing Nigel Newton described it as a "very exciting and truly unique way of providing access to the finest drama literature. Many iconic works in this collection have never been made available digitally before and we are delighted to be working in partnership with Faber."
