Welcome


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):

Pay-What-You-Want Titles

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. 

In case you would like to connect with us beyond this website, here are a few other places where you can find BDP. We would love to be as connected as possible.

You can find us on Instagram at bluedasherpress.

You can also find us on Twitter.

Please reach out to us at anytime with questions at info@bluedasherpess.com. We will be happy to help you. 

Again, thank you for being here!
