KHT Bookshop opening


Bookworms and Drama Devotees - In search of your next read? Look no further!


Hold onto your seats because we're thrilled to announce the King's Head Theatre bookshop opening - The Nook.

Step inside our new home and prepare to immerse yourself in a curated collection of playtexts and scripts that promise to ignite your imagination. From gripping dramas to hilarious comedies, there's something for everyone to explore. Open the door and let your curiosity take over. 

And wait, that's not all—we have something special brewing just for you.

As part of this initiative, we're introducing our new Play Exchange scheme, which allows audience members and artists alike to swap a play they already have for one of ours, selected from our collection.

What is the Play Exchange?

Our Play Exchange scheme is open to all; this scheme invites individuals to trade in their pre-loved plays for daring new dramas or captivating comedies from our extensive collection. These texts, generously donated by our past collaborating partners, are now available for others to enjoy.

Don't have a play to exchange? No problem! Our Selected Plays are still available for purchase at £4, offering you the opportunity to expand your collection and delve into exciting stories.

Our scheme not addresses the rising costs of plays and ensures accessibility to a diverse selection of texts for all who visit us. In addition to playtexts, our bookshop offers a range of other literary treasures, including theatre-making guides, LGBTQ+ plays, anthologies, and playtexts from past KHT productions.

Moreover, we're thrilled to announce that the playtext for Breeding is now available for purchase at the Nook. This thought-provoking production is a must-have. You can get your copy at The Nook.

So, next time you're at the theatre, bring along a play of your own and seize the opportunity to exchange it for something new.
