Performing arts publisher Oberon Books has been acquired by Bloomsbury.
Oberon Books will sit alongside Bloomsbury’s current theatre offering, which includes Methuen Drama and the Arden Shakespeare.
Jonathan Glasspool, managing director of Bloomsbury’s academic and professional division, said: “We are delighted to become owners of the prestigious Oberon list.
“The Oberon programme aligns very well with our existing publishing within Methuen Drama. The Oberon list strengthens our offerings in contemporary theatre.
“With the combined lists of Oberon, Methuen Drama and the Arden Shakespeare, Bloomsbury is looking forward to developing and diversifying its position as the world’s leading international publisher in drama and the performing arts.”
Oberon’s founder James Hogan said: “After 32 years it’s time to ensure that Oberon and its authors achieve a secure, lively home in the future.
“I’m truly delighted that Bloomsbury, the leaders in drama publishing, are taking over to carry on the good work.”
