The price of your purchased script covers your performance royalties.




We're giving you the performance royalties for free. At least buy a script for each performer and your production staff & crew. The cost of the printed works is less than you'd pay for most performance royalties, so don't be a jerk (by breaking the law). Don't buy one script and copy it. That is illegal copyright infringement.

Besides, artists need to

support artists. 


Also, if you're putting on any of these works, let us know! We are honored and may even feature you here and when on tour. Or, if the location and timing work out, we could catch a show.
