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.

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.
