I just finished reading Crush by Stephen Gregg
I'm interested in the script, possibly for next fall.
Dramatic Publishing sells a manuscript version. Does that mean I can license the play through them? If we want to do the show, can we copy the manuscript legally, or do I have to but manuscripts for each actor?
Fun acting challenges, and some serious tech effects are suggested. Hope we can do it!
If they offer the play, even in manuscript, you can almost always license productions from them.
The rest of your question depends on the particular play and publisher. Sometimes you are required to buy enough single copies of the manuscript to outfit the play's cast requirements. In other cases, you buy one copy and then buy reprint rights to make the other copies you need. It's always best to check with the publisher in question, to keep yourself on the right side of the law. I have found Dramatic Publishing to be very helpful to school groups, so if you contact them directly, they'll probably be very happy to clarify the situation with this particular play.
