Hidden Gems

With thousands of wonderful plays and musicals to choose from, sometimes great shows get overlooked. With that in mind, we've created Hidden Gems: a selection of shows we believe people should be performing more.


Get to know these shows by ordering free copies of up to four different scripts from a selected list (you just pay postage, and the book is yours to keep). Click here to learn which shows are included, and find out how to claim your free perusal copies.


All these shows can be licensed for a third less than our usual fees. As if that wasn't enough, you can buy your production scripts for these shows at up to 50% off

Please note, the reduced prices (33.33% less than the standard fee) will not be shown automatically during the licensing process, but will be applied by the licensing team after we receive your application, and before you're requested to make any payment.

If you're looking for more off-the-beaten track choices, please do contact our licensing team, who are always here for help and inspiration.
