As the coronavirus outbreak continues to unfold, venues across the UK and beyond have been forced to close their doors. The plays on there have had their runs cut tragically short, tours and artists have had dates cancelled, and some shows weren’t even able to open at all.
But: even in these uncertain times, these plays survive on the page. At Nick Hern Books, they mourn the lost productions, but celebrate these writers and their achievements. So as we all wait for this crisis to pass, for theatres to reopen their doors, and hopefully for these shows to return, they’re asking you to show your support for these incredible playwrights and their work by buying these scripts, and experiencing them for yourselves in the safety of your own home.
And to make supporting them a little easier, you can save 30% on the RRP of all of these fantastic plays – in both print and ebook formats (where available) – by entering code STILLON30 at checkout.
See the full list of NHB plays included in their Still on the Page celebration. If necessary, they’ll keep adding to it as more productions are sadly affected by the coronavirus outbreak, so check back soon for your chance to support more fantastic writers.
The Royal Exchange Theatre has had to suspend all performances, rehearsals, activity and has closed our building to the public until Saturday 4April – the final performance of ROCKETS AND BLUE LIGHTS.
Winsome Pinnock’s astonishing play retells British history through the prism of the slave trade. Fusing fact with fiction, past with present, the powerfully personal with the fiercely political, Rockets and Blue Lights asks who owns our past – and who has the right to tell its stories?
Winner of the 2018 Alfred Fagon Award you can access the play for 30% off with the code STILLON30 here
