Playset Selection Guide

This guide is intended to aid the selection of play sets for reading or production. It has been arranged so that you can search for plays with a suitable cast in terms of gender and number. If you require a set which is not listed we may be able to borrow it from another Library authority, so please ask using the contact details given.

Ordering & borrowing

You can book in advance to hire sets for a long loan period to cover rehearsal and performance. Please note, hire charges apply to all playsets.
