Rights to perform the following plays are negotiated on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the resources of the producing group and the cause that the proceeds will benefit. Instead of shipping multiple script copies, a duplication franchise is offered at a minimal fee. Actors have permission to use scenes or monologues for classes or auditions, as long as this website is mentioned at the time of recital.
Readings, critiques, rewrites, auditions, rehearsals,
|performance, notes, improvisations, revival productions have all contributed to these plays. At this point all of them, except the four awaiting their premiers*, can be produced with a shoestring budget, a little imagination, some lighting control, and the accompanying sound designs and slide projections available at minimal cost to groups wishing to mount a show. In most cases, quick, lateral scene changes provide a filmic flow greatly enhanced by the segue music, off-stage voices, narrations, sound-effects and overture/interval music of the sound designs...and thematically supported by the slide projections. These cost hundreds of dollars and hours to develop, but are now ready-made for you at a fraction of their cost.|
