Here are the names of the plays written by Robert Browning that I was able to find:

1. "Strafford" (1837)

2. "Pipa Passes" (1841- Published in Bells and Pomegranates, No. I)

3. "King Victor and King Charles" (1842- Published in Bells and Pomegranates, No. II)

4. "The Return of the Druses" (1843-Published in Bells and Pomegranates, No. IV)

5. "A Blot in the 'Suctcheon" (1894- Published in Bells and Pomegranates, No. V)

6. "Colombe's Birthday" (1844- Published in Bells and Pomegranates, No. VI)

7. "A Souls Tragedy" (1846- Published in Bells and Pomegranates, No. VIII)

8. "Luria" (1846- Published in Bells and Pomegranates, No. VIII)

9."In a Balcony" (1868/9) Could be considered a poem or play given its distinctive dialogue.

I could only find these 9. From what I found out about "In a Balcony" there could be another of Browning's poems which one could interpret as either a poem or a play.
