I didn't receive the script(s) I ordered.

If you haven't received your order by the end of the next business day (M-F), please contact me right away. Usually, the problem is one of the following:

  • the emails have been routed to a spam or bulk mail folder
  • I received an incorrect or misspelled email address, or one that you don't use much anymore
  • your school server or email account has blocked the emails

Can I stage your plays for free? Can I use them in a classroom for free (even though I am not charging any admission)?

I'm sorry, but no. I post the full, unlicensed script to help you choose a play that suits your needs. Permission to use my plays on stage or in a classroom is granted only to those who have paid the royalty for a licensed script. Each one of my plays is the result of many weeks of hard work. It's only right that I'd be compensated.

Please respect my copyright and don't use these plays without paying for a licensed script. Thank you.

What is the royalty for scripts licensed for performance and classroom use?

The royalty for most licensed scripts is $25.00, while for some it is $10.00. All prices include:

  • 8 1/2 x 11 script. You make copies for your cast and crew. No booklet costs!
  • 1 performance. Extra performances are $5.00 each.
  • Classroom license for reading and education.
  • Questions and Tips For the Actors.
  • Free Shipping by Email: By midnight of the next business day (Monday-Friday), you will receive an email with your script package attached (.pdf), followed by another backup email with a dropbox link from which you can download. Often, I get the script out the same day you order, so check your email. If you don't receive it within the promised time, please contact me right away.
  • If you don't receive your order by midnight (EST) of the next business day, please contact me right away. It's usually either an email address problem, a server has blocked the emails, or they have been routed to a spam-bulk-junk folder.

How do I order extra performances? What if I don't know exactly how many performances I will need, yet?

The price of the script includes 1 single performance of the script and license to use in the classroom for reading and educational purposes.

A performance is defined as "a staging of the play for the public, the school, or a gathering of people." Rehearsals and classroom use are NOT considered performances.

Extra performances are $5.00 each. They can be added when ordering the licensed script at the bottom of each play page...during checkout for credit card payments (blue BUY NOW buttons), or if you have a Paypal account, right above the Paypal button. Just choose the number you want from the dropdown menus. If you don't know how many performances you are going to have or need when ordering the script, just pay the base price (includes 1st performance) and return to the website at a later time and purchase any extra performances you need. You are on your honor (honor system). There is a Buy Xtra Shows link on top and bottom of every page like below:

Can admission be charged at the door?

Yes. You are encouraged to do so, even if it is just a dollar or two. People don't mind paying a little to see a play, especially if you make it clear that it is to help defer the costs to put on the play, support the drama program or theater, or for charity. Some people call it a "suggested donation." Drama clubs, theaters, and charities have made thousands of dollars using my plays. Charge as much as you want, the royalties for a script and any extra performances is all you have to pay me. You don't have to pay me a piece of your admission money

When I try to make a payment, my credit card keeps getting rejected.  What can I do?

If your credit card gets rejected, it's for one or more of the following reasons:

  • The name and/or address information you entered did not match the name and/or address on your monthly billing statement.
  • The 3-digit Credit Card Verification number you entered is incorrect. Visa and MasterCard list the 3-digit Card Verification Number on the back of the card and to the right of the card number. American Express lists the 4-digit Card Verification Number on the front of the card and to the right of the card number.
  • Insufficient funds.

Most often, it is that incorrect information has been entered. If you continue to have problems, try one of the following:

  • Contact me by email and explain your problem. I'll answer your email within one business day. We'll work it out.
