Scripts

Productions of our plays must be rehearsed using either original published copies of the script or with scripts reproduced under a script distribution license issued by us.

Thank you for respecting copyright law. Our playwrights earn a living based on your honesty.

Your order will be delayed if you book performance rights without arranging for scripts and we cannot locate a past record of script purchases.
