"Play" is a 1991 album by the British New Wave group Squeeze. It is the band's ninth album, and their only released by Reprise Records. It is also of note as it is the first LP in the Squeeze discography to feature only four official members instead of five (Steve Nieve took on many of the keyboard duties that would have gone to Jools Holland in the past). Tony Berg produced the album, which, despite weak sales, is a fan favorite. In the liner notes to the 1996 Squeeze compilation "Excess Moderation", Glenn Tilbrook stated that he considers "Play" the beginning of Squeeze's "renaissance period."

The liner notes to the album are, appropriately, in the form of a play that incorporates the lyrics of the songs in a script that also references the plays "Our Town" by Thorton Wilder and "Waiting for Godot" by Samuel Beckett.
