~~Renting monologues and plays~~
There is a delicate balance between community theatre, school, semi- professional, and professional. It often pays to read a portion of the play to see if it fits into your needs. After doing so, it is customary, and even legally required to honor copyright laws and pay the author a royalty for the use of his material.
Sometimes the line is a little blurry, and that might necessitate a conversation between the author and the theatre. You’ll find that we’re very good at listening, and that we do not “hard-line” anything. Our royalty rates are completely in keeping with the accepted norm, no more.
Occasionally a theatre or school invites the playwright to attend the opening performance or even lend his thoughts during rehearsal. We are open to this, if schedules and budgets allow.
Royalty rates for monologues, ten-minute plays, one-act plays, and full-length plays will vary according to use, venue and the length of the play.
If you have further questions, I recommend emailing me specifically, and I’ll respond asap. Please put PLAY INQUIRY in the subject line, so that my mail program does not think your note is spam.
