We proudly represent the plays of Josef Weinberger. Founded in 1946 as the English Theatre Guild, Josef Weinberger Plays have since become one of the leading play publishers and representatives of stage performance rights for many of the world’s foremost authors and estates. From international playwrights including John Steinbeck, Eugene O’Neill and Ingmar Bergman to a wealth of British authors such as John Godber, Ray Cooney, Peter Gordon and Debbie Isitt. Building a formidable catalogue of plays ranging from contemporary comedy and drama to adaptations of classic literary titles, we aim to offer something to appeal to every theatre company for an upcoming production.

A full list of the plays in their catalogue can be found here.
