Free-to-borrow theatre texts for Hull residents

Our new theatre library, in association with Oberon Books and with support from Nick Hern Books and Paines Plough, is an ever-growing collection of the latest plays and theatre reference books, ensuring that world-class texts are available for any resident of Hull to borrow free-of-charge.

​Regular reading groups will also run throughout the year while people are also welcome to use our reading and writing facilities at our rehearsal and workspace on William Street.

​From October to December in 2019 you can also find a pop-up version of our plays collection at Hull Libraries across the city, as part of our Plays Aloud project.
