Online Performances of Nick Hern Books titles
10 Jun

Applications now open for amateur online productions of NICK HERN BOOKS titles!

We're delighted to announce that we're now inviting applications to license Nick Hern Books plays for amateur online performance.

With theatres still closed, an online performance is the perfect way to bring your members or students together to keep sharing your passion, experience great new plays by today's most exciting writers, and stay active and connected. Whether you're looking to share a play you've always been passionate about (maybe even getting a former cast together for a long-awaited revival!), test out a show you've had your eye on for a future, fully staged production, or try something completely different, we're here to support you in making that happen.

Online performance licences are available for both live-streamed performances and broadcasts of recorded productions, at a discounted rate of A$115 + gst (or less for shorter plays) for each live performance or day that the production remains online.

For more information on how the whole process works, check out:
See below for some suggestions of great plays to consider for online performance. Please note that, as usual, you'll need to secure approval and a licence for your production. Just because a play is included below doesn't mean it's automatically available, and all applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
