PETER HAGAN, PRESIDENT OF THE DRAMATISTS PLAY SERVICE
Dramatists Play Service was founded in 1936 by the Dramatists Guild of America and a group of concerned play agents to promote the licensing of amateur productions of plays, and publication of acting editions. It has subsequently expanded to include the license of professional productions, and has become the foremost licensor of plays in the English language, with over 4,000 titles in its catalogue—including all of the plays of Tennessee Williams. DPS is devoted to protecting the rights of its playwrights, and also to making the work of those playwrights available to theatre producers, both professional and nonprofessional. This workshop will focus on both producers and writers. How do I get the rights to produce one of the plays? How do I get my play published by DPS? What are the dos and don’ts of play publishing and licensing? The answers may surprise you. Sponsored by Dramatists Play Service.
