Our new Plays to Perform brochure features a wide selection of new releases and many of our most popular plays, and is FREE to browse online - or we'll even send you a copy by post if you'd prefer.
Whatever you're looking for, you're sure to find it here, whether it's a crowd-pleasing comedy, a musical, a historical drama, something with great roles for women or a play with lots of parts for younger performers. Also included are candid reviews from amateur companies who have staged the plays to give you a feel for what they're like in performance.
Why not have a browse now...

We are delighted announce that the music by Laura Forrest-Hay to accompany Jessica Swale's hit play Blue Stockings is now available to license from Nick Hern Books.
The music was written to accompany a production of the play at RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art) in 2012, and can be licensed to amateur companies wishing to use it to accompany their own performances of the play.
To listen to a short trailer containing extracts from the score, visit our SoundCloud page here.
The music is available as pre-recorded sound files that can be played alongside your production, at the very competitive rate of only £15 plus VAT per performance.
Alternatively, composer Laura Forrest-Hay will consider requests to create a new score, tailored to your own requirements. You can contact her via Nick Hern Books, firstname.lastname@example.org.
