Hello. Thank you for stopping by. We're happy you're here
We are Blue Dasher Press. We are a small, indie press based in Chicago. We publish stage plays, novels, short stories, and collections of poetry exclusively by writer David-Matthew Barnes, who co-founded the company with us in July of 2017.
To date, we have published more than seventy of David-Matthew's plays. Five of these scripts have been adapted into films.
All of our stage plays are available to purchase in printable PDF's at our digital store. Additionally, all of our stage plays are available to purchase via Amazon in Kindle Unlimited (eBook) editions. If you're an actor, we encourage you to check out the Monologues section, especially if you're looking for a contemporary audition piece.
Each month, we produce a virtual reading of one of our stage plays (or a collection of our short plays). These readings are streamed as a YouTube premiere event. If you are interested in audition information, please visit the Auditions page.
Interested in performing one of our plays? Visit the Producing Our Plays section where you will find more information about the simple three-step process for request production rights.
To learn more about our novels and short stories, the Fiction section includes information about them.
Similarly, the Poetry section is devoted to our collections of poetry.
