Let's be honest, 2020 has been a really tough year – which makes this #LoveTheatreDay a more special and vital occasion than ever.

So we're marking the occasion by offering you the chance to save 40% on dozens of great NHB playscripts and theatre books, for 24 hours only, in our #LoveTheatreDay Sale!
The Sale runs from 10am GMT on Wednesday 18 November to 10am GMT on Thursday 19 November. No voucher code is required – just fill your basket with as many of the brilliant titles below as you like, head to checkout, and your discount will be automatically applied. This offer applies to paperback and ebook editions of the titles included (where available).
Plus, £1 from every book sold in our #LoveTheatreDay Sale will go to the Theatre Artists Fund, which provides emergency support for theatre-workers and freelancers across the UK affected by the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the theatre sector.

The recipients of the Olivier Awards 2020 were announced last night (Sunday 25 October), with NHB-published Dear Evan Hansen one of the ceremony's big winners.
The acclaimed, groundbreaking show by Steven Levenson, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul took home three prizes: Best New Musical, Best Original Score or New Orchestrations, and Best Actor in a Musical (Sam Tutty). Its Olivier Awards wins follow the huge success of Dear Evan Hansen's Broadway premiere, where it won six Tony Awards including Best Musical, as well as the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.
Dear Evan Hansen was playing at the Noel Coward Theatre in London's West End, until it was forced to close in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is currently slated to return in 2021.
