50 Best Plays Young Audiences Vicky Ireland Paul HarmanInternational Literacy Day shines a spotlight on global literacy needs, and is one of the initiatives of the International Association who believe that  “Literacy is the ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, compute, and communicate using visual, audible, and digital materials across disciplines and in any context.”

We publish novels for Young Adults, but we also want to encourage as many young people as possible to get involved in drama by writing and putting on their own plays or by staging one of the many wonderful plays especially written for young children.

Our recent book 50 Best Plays for Young Audiences: theatre-making for children and young people in England: 1965-2015, written and edited by Vicky Ireland and Paul Harman highlights how important drama is as a way for children to communicate, and showcases 50 of the best plays written over the past 50 years.
