New in Comedies: “A definite must-see again and again!”: Desperate Writers

"Desperate Writers" in ComediesPlayscripts, playscripts, playscripts!

ProPlay is the premier site on the web for online, professionally-produced stage plays, which you can read right now, free-of-charge. You may browse our play scripts by category or by playwright name. In most cases, the playwright has chosen to have the entire script posted; in all cases, substantial portions of the play may be read now. For free.

ProPlay has been created to make the scripts of professionally-produced stage plays available to a wider readership, and to a wider pool of potential producers, than conventional play publishing allows. In many instances, however, our scripts are also available in print. Where that’s the case, we have provided a link for those who prefer to buy the print version.

All scripts are copyright the playwright, and performance rights must be secured before the play is produced.

Finding the perfect play to produce has never been easier. Click below to start reading our scripts, free-of-charge, now!
