You can find Restoration drama texts in the Oxford Text Archive, for example
with catalogue numbers), by Aphra Behn (1327, 2006), John Gay (1706), Thomas
Shadwell (1294), James Shirley (0601), plus a corpus of prologues and
epilogues of the Restoration (1325).
If you use the author name or the numbers in the simple search box at
http:/ota.ahds.ac.uk/ you will find these texts.
You might also want to take a look at Voice of the Shuttle, which
categorises links to free e-texts by period and genre.
