The NHB Playgroup

Enjoy one great NHB play each month at 50% off, plus an interview with the writer

 

The NHB Playgroup was a monthly playreading and discussion community from Nick Hern Books, the UK's leading specialist theatre publisher.

First launched in April 2020 during the first COVID-enforced lockdown in the UK, the Playgroup saw us select and highlight a series of fantastic plays from the extensive NHB list – initially offered to read online for free during lockdown, and later in paperback and ebook at a specially discounted price – with readers invited to submit a question on each play for the writer. We then recorded an interview with them, using questions submitted by readers, which was released as an episode of The NHB Playgroup Q&A Podcast, a free series to download and enjoy.

The NHB Playgroup is currently on hiatus, with no future installments currently planned. If this changes, our newsletter subscribers will be amongst the first to know – so be sure to subscribe here to make sure you don't miss any updates!
