Dramatists Play Service

           An AACT Corporate Partner

Unique among licensing houses today, Dramatists Play Service was founded in 1936 by the Dramatists Guild of America and a group of playwrights’ agents, initially to promote the production of amateur theatre. Today the Play Service licenses over 4,000 plays and musicals, for both amateur and professional productions, and publishes the acting editions of the plays as well. Our distinctive covers and logo are recognized the world over.

Last year we added to our catalogue all four of the Tony Award nominees for Best Play (DISGRACED, HAND TO GOD, WOLF HALL and the winner, THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME), as well as the winner of the Pulitzer Prize (BETWEEN RIVERSIDE AND CRAZY). In addition to our 33 Tony Award winners, we publish 45 Pulitzer Prize winners. We’re proud to publish and represent the best playwrights in the English language. As we celebrate our 80th anniversary in August of 2016, we look forward to fostering opportunity and providing support to playwrights for many years to come.
