Sarah Lyle and Bernadette Brown in Girls and Dolls. One of many scripts available in the Tinderbox Library

We keep a small library of contemporary plays in the Tinderbox office which you can borrow if you are interested in stage writing.

If you want to write for the professional stage it is important to read what is on at the stages around UK and Ireland and further afield.

Or if you are a young company looking for plays to put on you are also welcome to come in and browse the shelves.

We keep:

  • plays
  • ‘how to’ books
  • reference books
  • journals which contain plays from around the world
  • a wide range of radio plays in mp3 format

We need you to sign out any books you borrow and please return them within a month so that other people have access to them as well.

You will need to call the office to make sure that someone is in. Call us on 02890 439313
