Plays International & Europe continues the tradition of the London theatre magazines Plays and Players and Plays International of the mid to late 20th century that defined British theatre culture, with a new editorial shift in emphasis to continental Europe.

The magazine is sensitive to new trends in European theatre aesthetics, aiming to capture and define the spirit of theatrical traditions as they are developing today. The quarterly covers little-known events as well as theatrical hotspots worldwide: London and the UK, many European capitals, Moscow, Sydney, Tehran, Tel Aviv, New York (including a summary of what’s showing on Broadway), Chicago, and others.

Exclusive articles and interviews are written by critic-correspondents who report on theatrical events and personalities they believe to be remarkable and expressive of a contemporary ethos. Every issue contains a treasure trove of high resolution photographs and an exhaustive “What’s on in London” list describing all upcoming mainstream shows.
