The present lack of a unique bibliography which can reflect the totality of published national drama, and the need for combined bibliography for educational purposes, led to the composition of the Bibliography of Albanian Drama. Research, for the first drama, lasted until 2017 and was conducted in Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Turkey, Italy, Greece, Croatia, in other Balkan countries, in Europe, in archives, in literary journals, etc, resulting in 1,461 works of drama. A series of historical-literary problems is noticed, but above all, what is seen is that the genre of drama appears in very few published works. Particularly the historical aspects, as well as the typological developments of this published genre, will be dealt in this paper.
