Between the Covers


Explore by Category — BTC offers dozens to serve every collector's needs.

Very few plays are printed by large publishing houses, and then usually in small print runs. The few publishers who specialize in plays, such as Samuel L. French, print them to be used by theatrical companies, not to be read. For these reasons trade editions of plays (copies sold in general bookstores, as opposed to specialty and theatrical bookstores) are very uncommon. However, many classic titles (not to mention the sources for many fine films) were plays, and many are collectible.
