Theatres, producing organizations, and their representatives may request perusal copies of my plays free of charge. What's a "representative"? I don't only mean the artistic director or folks in the literary department. If you're a director, actor, or committee member who frequently works with a company and recommends scripts for production, this means you, too. I've had dozens of scripts produced around the world that way.
To request a perusal script, please send email including the following information, and perusal script(s) will be forwarded to the address you authorize -- email or post. Email, text, or PDF attachments will get to you fastest -- however, please complete all requested information so I have a real-world way of identifying and contacting you. Email addresses have a habit of changing, and from some, I can't tell if you're in Akron or Australia.
