Find your next Plays & Screenplays read

Want to be the next Shakespeare, or maybe the next Sorkin or Tarantino? Then you’ll want to pay close attention to this section of Reedsy Discovery, which houses all of the best play and screenplay books!

Whether it’s notes on the style and techniques involved, or a first draft from a screenwriter who’ll someday hit it big, these indie texts are your exclusive glimpse into the world of cinema and theatre. If all the world’s a stage, then Reedsy Discovery is where you can find the folios — and maybe even gather inspiration for your own creation.

For the most impressive and entertaining texts in the biz (show biz, that is), follow our play and screenplay Discovery reviewers to see what they’d find particularly watch-worthy. Don’t cheat yourself out of the Next Big Thing just because it takes the “manu” out of manuscript!
