About Us

Playdead Press is an independent UK publishing house based in Portsmouth dedicated to the publication of new and emerging writers.

Playdead Press seeks to continue growing as a publishing house that is appreciated for the quality of its publications and the support it gives to its writers.  We want our publications not only to interest but to inspire.

Formerly known as Playdead.Famous Publications, Playdead Press is going from strength to strength and its focus on some of the UK's pre-eminent dramatists shows a unique dedication to modern drama.

Playdead Press has recently had the pleasure to work with emerging writers not just from the UK but from as far away as the US and Australia and we look forward to continuing to publish high quality work from an eclectic range of writers.
