FAQ’s

What are PDF scripts?

PDF files are Portable Document Format files that can be opened in most computers and web browsers using Adobe Acrobat Reader. ( Link download Adobe Acrobat Reader)

Scripts are provided in PDF format in two different formats on our online Bookstore.

  • Review copies of plays may be purchased in a PDF format which will be delivered either through an email link or a download button after payment. You can print one copy only. Review scripts may not be printed or reproduced for distribution in any form, or shared electronically. In accordance with the writers’ contracts with us, they each contain a faint watermark.
  • Performance / Production copies may also be purchased in a printable PDF format with no watermark. They may be purchased on our online Bookstore. Order enough copies for the whole cast, if you plan to perform the play. You will receive a single PDF file. The quantity you order and price you pay allows you to print enough copies for your cast and crew.
  • Performance licenses for a play will only be granted if sufficient copies of the script have been purchased for the whole cast.

How are E-Scripts different from hard or print copies?

E-scripts are digital versions of a play for tablets and other devices. These may not be copied or otherwise shared, as all works are subject to copyright. link

Hard or print copies are paperback books sent to you via a mail service. These may not be copied or shared by any electronic means in whole or in part by force of federal law, as they are subject to copyright. link

What are performance royalties and what are they for?
There are two kinds of performance royalties:

  • This is a fee charged for each performance, based on the length of the play and nature of the producing theatre. ( School, Amateur, Professional, Community)
  • We also offer a production package with an included fee for a specific number of performances for amateur and school theaters for many plays.
  • Performance Royalties are charged via the Production License you pay for.

Why do you charge for productions?

This is the way the authors earn their living. One play can take anywhere from months to several years to create, which often involves collaboration with theaters and theater professionals. Copying a script or producing it without permission from the author or publisher is equivalent to swiping a steak from a butcher.

How many scripts do I need to buy?

  • For review purposes, you need to buy only one script. Select ” Review Script” in the Order Section on a book page.
  • For production purposes, you need to buy sufficient scripts to produce the play; a minimum would be one for each character, for the director, for the stage manager, and for the tech people involved.
