HaveScripts is the play script publishing company from which Blue Moon Plays emerged. Their mission is, and was, to serve the educational theater and community theater marketplace.
We retained many of those original scripts which continue to be popular with schools, senior groups, churches, other spiritual communities, and community theater.
The HaveScripts imprint is dedicated to keeping the classics alive in theatrical adaptations, providing a forum for religious and spiritual expression, and bringing theater to diverse communities around the world.
Blue Moon Plays
Blue Moon Plays champions new original scripts, for risky, contemporary theater. Play scripts published under the Blue Moon Plays imprint will either have had significant productions with material that has proven controversial or is off the beaten path. Some of these plays may present casting or staging challenges to theaters. In either case, they have not seen the number of productions they deserve and we are providing a home for them here.
We provide a resource for theaters looking for a script for that is quirky either by its content or its staging, but which is still in the development stage. and looking for a Premier Production. There are other sites that offer playwrights a place to list new plays, but these plays have not been vetted.
Over time, it became clear that some plays either belonged in collections or weren’t exactly plays in the traditional sense. The potential for theatrical events that didn’t obey the boundaries of the traditional stage emerged and so began the collections of monologues and poetry for the stage. Thus, there was a need for a third imprint: ScriptWorks Press, the label that now marks our foray into inviting prose writers as well as poets to join us on stage.
Whatever the imprint, if one of our plays hasn’t made you think, we haven’t done our job.
