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.
Rather than read individual posts (which, as you can see by our previous posts, we used to write), hop over to the News section for current and past updates on all of our releases and events.
To date, we have published more than sixty of David-Matthew's plays. Five of these scripts have been adapted into films. You can read about these scripts in the Plays section. All of our stage plays are available to purchase in printable PDF's at our online BDP PayHip 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.
If you're on a budget, these plays are available at a pay-what-you-want rate (you pick the price for the script):
Bracelets and Boyfriends
Close Your Eyes and Count to Infinity
A Darling Among the Maidens
Deena and the Dino Mights
Don't Mention It
Free Dry on Thursdays

Similarly, the Poetry section is devoted to our collections of poetry.
