I love plays. A condensed story, conflict, and great writing.

Both watching and reading plays is vital for actors. If you’re an actor you need to engaging with great writing on daily basis. Buy, or rent, a stack of them and get stuck in.

What play should I read?

If you want to know where to get started this is an amazing resource. We made a number of “best of” lists. Kind of like Greatest Hits albums, they are a bit lame, but the best way to learn more about playwrights.

We will be constantly expanding this section and adding more information to our large database of plays. Listed here is everything from Shakespeare to Miller.
