Ian Hornby (1949-2013)
Dear Authors and Drama Groups
Plays for YOUR Theatre Group (but don't forget the novel!!! - See below.)
On this site you will find over 50 tried and trusted stage plays by award-winning playwright Ian Hornby, who has been writing for over 20 years and whose plays have been staged and performed all over the World, from places as far apart as the USA, Greece, Cayman Islands, Holland, Japan, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Brunei (and, of course the UK) and some have even been translated into German, Japanese and Turkish.
Navigating this site
Click on a button in the top menu to be taken to a page for that category. There you'll find a whole variety of plays ready for YOUR production. For each play there are some notes about the play and a synopsis.
Remember - I'll email you evaluation copies of any plays FREE of any charges or obligation. Just email me the titles you would like to read. If you're in the UK and ask nicely I'll send you a paper copy if I have any
For my murder games, here's a chance to raise funds for your group doing what you love - acting! Forget coffee mornings and cheese-and-wine events, treat yourself and your audience to a couple of hours of entertainment and non-stop fun. I can provide the scripts and all evidence documentation and, in most cases, tailor these to suit your group and event. If you have a special theme in mind, contact me and we can see if one can be devised to suit.
If your group has performed any of my plays, I have recently started to publish production photos, programmes, reviews, etc., on this site, and I'd love to have yours too. Also, if you are staging a play, you can get FREE publicity from Amateur Stage magazine, Sardines Magazine and amdram.co.uk - see my links page.
