About Us

New Theatre Publications is the trading name of the publishing house that is owned by members of the Co-operative. This exciting project was launched by writers Paul Beard and Ian Hornby in October 1997 following the discovery that for a number of years they, and a large number of other writers, had been systematically ripped off by a well-known publishing house who were failing to pass on royalty payments.

From the outset it was our intention to provide the kind of service to writers that no other publishing house offers and we are constantly reviewing our methods to keep one step ahead of all the others. We may not be the biggest (as yet) but we sure try hard to be the best.

Attention Theatre Groups
We offer FREE evaluation copies of all our plays
