Rights and Royalties

Licensing Fees:

Licensing fees, sometimes referred to as royalties, compensate the playwright for their work. Without playwrights there would be no theatre. WordCrafts Theatrical Press supports theatre and the playwrights who create it by charging an appropriate licensing fee for all productions of their work. Licensing Fees are due two weeks prior to production and are applicable to each and every performance, whether or not admission is charged.
