Yes and No… depends on who you are. If you are performing my plays and NOT charging any money for people to see it, then it’s a “pay what you can” model. MANY schools can’t afford anything, and that’s OK. But, if you can afford $5 or $10 or the entire $45, that’s great too! (This is how I make my living!)
HOWEVER, if you are charging the audience to see it, then YES, there is a licensing fee. Also, if this is being performed for a competition, festival, or as a donation event, then YES, the licensing fees do apply.
The costs for one play are:
- $45 per performance
- $40 per performance (for 3 or more performances)
- $35 per performance (for 6 or more performances)
If you are doing multiple plays in one performance (i.e. Hamlet, Macbeth, and Midsummer all for 1 ticket price), then the costs are:
- $90 per performance
- $85 per performance (for 3 or more performances)
- $75 per performance (for 6 or more performances)

If you do fall under, “there is no royalty” then that’s great! If you can still let me know, I would appreciate it, I love to share when groups perform my plays.
