I have to admit that I was a little sceptical of how how successful this venture would be but I did upload one ten minute play to see how it went.

Today I have received royalties for two downloads of the script in December. Smashing start to the New Year.

Me too, I've received some royanties from downloads and also find them to be very kind and thoughtful in the way they've treated me.

Hi Bobbi, can't say much more except the fact that they recently did some improvements to their website, making it more user-friendly to the author.

They seem to like art - I created several pieces for a friend who submitted some plays - the plays themselves are excellent but my frend thinks the art helped.  You can cancel your agreement with them whenever you wish.

They also don't ask for any sort of exclusive and don't mind if you make other arrangements for production elsewhere - I had a production of my full-length scheduled for April and they only wished me well... like I said, I can't complain about the way they've treated me.

Wishing you well and success... Sam

Thanks, Sam.  Sounds like it's worth trying out.  Interesting about the art, since I can do that for myself.  Never thought that skill could come in handy except for dressing up my website or blog.

You're most welcome... please remember that my group "the Mountain Stage Co" does staged readings of short plays in downtown Hendersonville, NC one night every month - performing 6-10 plays of an evening in a Cabaret setting.  We don't pay royalties but send all authors a copy of the poster and program for the evening's entertainment.  All plays are treated as "Workshop Readings" to preserve the possibility of a "Premier" elsewhere.  We're playwrights, so the playwright gets the bio in the program - not the actor.

Bobbi,

I am pleased with Production Scripts.  They are professional and personable.  They take a larger percentage fee for productions than I would otherwise agree to, but since they do not insist on a binding or an exclusive contract I have nothing to lose -- something is better than nothing.

Is this an endorsement?  Well, from what I know of them and from how they have respected both me and my work -- yes, I suppose it is.

Best,
Edd

Hi Edd,

Thanks!  I am impressed by their website.  I noticed that you have quite a few plays there.  I figured it's just another way to get our unpublished plays seen, hopefully read and produced.  I'll be submitting some work to them soon!

Edd,

I just looked at a few pages of your Proctologist's Daughter play there, and noticed that it's in actor's script format.  Did you submit it that way?  Mine is in the unpublished format, I wonder if I should reformat before submitting anything else.  Also, did you add all the copyright info. on the first page, or did they?

It was also confusing to set prices for the various productions...I sort of took an average of what other folks were charging, depending on length, but wasn't real sure that I got it right.

thanks!

bobbi c.

Bobbi,

Many of the plays there are already published.  Only with French am I not allowed to promote or do whatever I want with the plays.

As for the format I use, it is the same format that I will only accept for the contest that begins on April 1st.  I have used that format for way more than a decade.  It has never gotten in my way.  If a producer or anybody won't accept it I really don't care.  I would find it absurd of them and wouldn't want them to touch my work anyway.  I'm quite arrogant in matters of stupidity.  However, I have never had a problem with how I format.  All you need to remember is instead of an average of one minute per page, the style in which I work is most generally one and one half minutes per page.  I have been a champion of the "acting style" format for decades, as many in this forum will tell you.  Why?  Because it is infinitely easier to write and to read.

Best,
Edd

P.S.  Glad to be your FB friend.

Thanks for the speedy reply, Edd.  I had already uploaded my first play there before I saw your sample.  I usually use the "stupid" format (LOL) since some opps ask for it like that, but for sure, you're right that your format is easier to write and read.

I wonder, in general, how many productions have been sold through there? 

Thanks for the help with this!

bobbi c.

Bobbi,

None.  I have only been on it for a few weeks.  I did sell one script and made a whole $2.00  :)

Hey, that's more than we'd get if our plays were still sitting on our hard drives, turning into compost, isn't it?  LOL
