My First Play is a unique collection of pieces by playwrights, actors and theatre directors - all of them regular Nick Hern Books authors - in response to the simplest of briefs: write about your first play.

Candid, hilarious, and often sharply revealing, the resulting pieces - many of them written in the hurly-burly of work on a new production - combine to prove the power of theatre to entrance us, and hold us captive in its spell.
There are some enthralling insights into the first steps in theatre of some of our principal actors and theatre directors: Antony Sher discovering theatre in Cape Town during the apartheid years; Dominic Cooke paying the price for using a real knife in performance and Harriet Walter's photographic recall of the annual outing to Peter Pan.
