3 HOLE PRESS is a home for performance in book form and everyday life. We publish titles and offer programs that expand our understanding of being together.

We approach publication through three connected approaches:

  • READING: 3 Hole publishes with an eye towards the reading experience. While plays and performance texts are typically published following a premiere, the Press publishes works regardless of their relationship to production based on the belief that scripts and scores are in and of themselves valuable mediums. We publish scripts to underline, study closely, return to over the years. 

  • REFLECTION: Each book we publish pairs a script with an original introduction by an artist in a different field. We are interested in finding new ways to reflect on plays and performance, whether live or in printed form.

  • DISTRIBUTION: Why should our experience of contemporary drama and performance be limited to what is on stage at our local venue? Through publication and readings, the Press creates a route for artists working in theatre and performance to have their work shared in the context of a larger, ongoing cultural conversation. 


In order to keep our titles accessible and events free, we operate through a non-profit model. Our publications are printed through the support of the New York State Council for the Arts, the Brooklyn Arts Council and contributions from readers.

Want to support us? You can do it! Here! 

3 Hole Press is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of 3 Hole Press must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
