Playscript Subscriptions


Nick Hern Books Playscript Subscriptions are the perfect way to keep up to date with the most exciting contemporary plays by today's top writers, from the UK's leading theatre publisher.

Each month we'll send you (or your chosen recipient) one newly published NHB playscript selected by our expert team. It could be a major premiere from a big-name playwright, a timely new version of a classic, or a fresh and exciting work by a talented, up-and-coming writer – all hot off the press, and straight from the UK and Ireland’s most renowned stages.
