Book Subscriptions

Our book subscriptions are your gateway to a whole year of the very best new titles in plays, fiction and children's books.

With a Play in the Post subscription you get a brand new play every month, delivered to your door, hand gift-wrapped, and chosen by people who love theatre as much as you do.

The perfect gift for all lovers of the theatre (although we think it’s totally acceptable to buy for yourself).

Explore our whole range of book subscriptions. Available online only.
