Off The Wall Plays – Online Play Publishers since 2010

[ad name=”Tweet”]

Off The Wall Plays is a  young, online publishing house whose aim is to attract quality playwrights with fresh, new ideas as opposed to our larger competitors.  We accept your plays free of charge. Off The Wall Plays will publish your play and get it out there for you. If your play sells, you will get 80% of the Royalties of each sale from the beginning.

Because Off The Wall Plays is a smaller publishing house, we have the resources and time it needs to get your play out there. We put a synopsis and sample of your your play on the front page of the website, when your play goes live, so it gets seen and not just filed into a genre with thousands of other plays. It stays in our top ten new plays for the next few months.We place a sample of your script on the website, not the full play so no one will be able to illegally use your work.

If your play sells well, we will add it to our “Best Sellers” list, automatically ranking it higher than ordinary plays, the price increases, and so do your Royalties. Plays bought to be used for a run or a season will also have license fees that will be paid by the organization that purchased the play, and 50% of those will go to the authors as well.

Once your play has been submitted, your play will be reviewed by our editor, who will contact you. Please have a look at our guidelines for submitting your play – by following these guidelines it will help your play sell.  We don’t mind correcting the odd typo, but plays with many spelling mistakes, missing punctuation marks and poor grammar will be sent back to the authors for correction before they can be considered for publishing, so please make sure yours is 100% first before you send it! We also try to get back to authors within a few days at most so they will know almost immediately that their script has been received and whether or not it will be published.

THE WANDERING BARD’S TALE – CHILDREN’S FAIRYTALE PLAY IN ONE ACT

When the Princess Dandelion is kidnapped by the evil sorcerer Jeff and his two sidekicks Cotton and Candy, King Monty (who lives in a hall, not a castle because it sounds better) sends his servant Max to rescue her. Max is aided by a wandering bard, named Pip, who helps Max rescue the headstrong Princess (who gets kidnapped once a month, usually) using a magical necklace and the power of a sneeze to defeat him in this children’s fairytale play.

 This play has been successfully staged and performed for a number of elementary schools in America and it ran for a year. It is a fantasy about the power of friendship and was used to get children interested in the arts.

Has your play been rejected by editors or sent back because of spelling and grammar?
Our online play script editing service can help. For just 20 cents a page, we can edit your play to the layout you require, fix any typos, spelling mistakes and grammar. It’s a service we offer our valued playwrights.  But you don’t need to publish with us to make use of this service. It’s up to you.

Once we have edited your script, we will return it to you in both PDF and word formats.  (Due to the number of different word programs on the market,  we cannot guarantee that your word program won’t alter the appearance of the document slightly. But the PDF format will be an exact replica.)

We always advise that you check your play thoroughly once you receive it to ensure you are happy with the changes we have made. Also please be aware that this service is only available in English, for now. Please let us know if you want your play in UK or American English as spelling and grammar differ slightly.

Once you have submitted your script, we will check it over and let you know the cost of editing it. We don’t charge for header and footer pages, only the body of the script. We don’t alter the original meaning of the script, only the English is corrected. This online play script editing service is run by Off The Wall Plays but is open to anyone who needs to use it.
