The Playscripts Difference

We let your work speak for itself.

Samples of each play we publish appear online in an encrypted, read-only format, secured against printing and copying/pasting. This online text allows readers to make decisions based on the merit of the play itself, without incurring a cost until they are ready to order books and/or performance rights.

We match producers with their perfect play.

Every year, hundreds of producers find love on Playscripts' proprietary, intuitive search tools get new plays in the right hands. Our online catalog is instantly searchable by genre, length, cast size, gender breakdown, and more.

We get it.

We have a comprehensive and constantly evolving understanding of the market. Playscripts looks beyond conventional notions of marketability (a New York Times rave is just one way to launch a play) to find a wide range of new work by undiscovered talent.
