               Free offers to production companies 
                   (click here to go to Royalty-Free Plays page)

             Special offer for all companies that have produced my work*******
             If you have produced one of my plays and would like to try something new,
             I present my 'FREE - no royalties for the first weekend' offer
(3 shows -one weekend)  

             Example - if you produced THE AFFIDAVIT, I would give you permission to              produce CURSE OF THE DUCHESS with no royalties for the first weekend!)

      
             Special offer for all companies that have NOT produced my work*******
             If you have never produced one of my plays and would like to try something new,
             try my FREE no royalties offer for the first weekend (3 shows -one weekend)

             for a play that has never been published or produced.

             This is your chance to get a world premiere - with no royalties for the first
              weekend!    All the plays offered have been read publicly and I am available for               rewrites at no cost to your company.   Why do I do this?   Because even though 
              most of my
work has been published and/or produced, I would like to see all my '
              work out on its own.   So, in the same way Mrs. Fields gave out free samples (of
              which I had many!), I am offering my work to groups that want to take a risk on
               something new - but not a totally unknown quantity.
             

               As you can see by navigating around this site (my playwriting abilities are
              better than my website skills)  my plays are well-received and well-reviewed.
              My work has been produced extensively throughout the United States and
              Canada, and in many countries worldwide.   (UK, Austria, New Zealand, Burma,
               China and more)

               (and perhaps - after you try something for free, you might want to try more                     of my other cookies....I mean plays.)
