This selection of contemporary plays – comedies and dramas, illuminate some aspect of our social or political condition and our ability or inability to cope with increasing violence, domestic upheavals in all parts of the world.
Some of these plays take a fresh, contemporary look at historical events and set their characters in a past time which examines the values of then and now in illuminating ways.
It is our belief that art of all kinds leads us to a better place–but especially theater. As an audience, we can laugh and cry together. As performers, we connect with the audience in healing ways.
All play scripts are available in both print copy and via download on our site immediately after payment. If you wish to produce or perform a script, there is a ” Performance Fee” button under each product price list which brings up a form to complete to request performance rights.
