ABOUT OUR SCRIPTS
The Porch Room’s collection of award-winning scripts and screenplays are now available online. Theater groups, film production companies, students and educational programs are welcome to peruse scripts online, print them, and perform them or contact the Porch Room for rights and availability.
You can read any of our non-published stage plays for free. Look through our list of titles to find a play of the right length, cast, and genre.

- You fill out our ONLINE APPLICATION FORM with information about the performance.

- You agree to the following payment terms, payable in advance:

- TWO OR MORE ONE ACT PLAYS PERFORMED TOGETHER: $50 per performance.
- FULL LENGTH PLAYS: $75 per performance
- Upon receipt of a signed licensing agreement, the producing party will receive a printable digital copy of the play. Printed copies are available upon request at $9 per copy.
