The webinar is open ALL theatre writers. Please share this event with your fellow dramatists.

Playwrights, composers, lyricists, and librettists often struggle professionally in theatres throughout the country, and even on Broadway, due to the wide-ranging demands and expectations that are imposed on them by their producers (and other collaborators), and are presented as “standard” terms. It is essential, therefore, that dramatists know the Dramatists Bill of Rights, which the Dramatists Guild established in 1926 and has defended ever since.

To ensure this ownership and control over your work, the Guild recommends that any production that involves a dramatist incorporates a written agreement in which both the producer and the writer acknowledge certain key industry standards.

During the webinar will walk through the key standards and open the room to questions.
