Request a Short Play

As people who have produced plays with community groups, students in schools and professional actors, it’s very important to us that you end up with the play you want. We want you to make the decision-making process as simple and as risk-free as possible so we have reduced the Short Play process to these two steps.

If you are intending to charge an admission fee then follow the steps set out below. Go to the fees section to see costs involved.

However, where the audience are not going to be charged an entry fee such as with a show-case evening or where the performance is part of a recognised charity event, there may not be a charge either for the script or the Performance Rights.

If that’s the case, please go straight to the Performance Rights Application form where you’ll see a space for you to tell us what you are planning to do. We’ll then let you know what steps you’ll need to take. Whatever is decided, we will still need to issue you with a Performance Rights certificate.
