Playtext Library

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 keeping a playtext library. This free reference library is a great reason for all budding writers, students and creatives 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.

We’re looking to update the catalogue soon. Thanks to some very kind donations we now have tonnes more plays.

Search the catalogue here // or find us directly from the Libib app
