We've got big plans this year…

Playtext Library

PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR PLAY TEXT LIBRARY IS CURRENTLY IN STORAGE AS OUR BUILDING UNDERGOES A PERIOD OF REDEVELOPMENT. 

You can find out more about our plans here.

The Bush Theatre is proud of its heritage and since moving in to the former Shepherd’s Bush Library we have maintained a relationship to curious audiences by maintaining a play text library.  This free reference library is a great reason for all budding playwrights to come visit us during the day and get inspired by those great playwrights seen on our stage and elsewhere.  Generously supported by individuals, major play publishers and playwrights we want to welcome you in to grab a coffee and a play and get working on that next draft.

The catalogue is fully searchable and we are always adding new titles, meaning that it is kept up to date and bursting with all the stories you could possibly want to be provoked by.  All we ask is that you leave the shelves in order and don’t walk out the door with that much loved Pinter, coveted Stephens, or the Kirkwood, Franzmann, Roy Williams and Graham that keep each other company on our bookshelves.
