Why are my scripts not free?

Being a playwright and a theatre artist, I depend on my artistic skills for a living. It takes a lot of time and effort for a script to be realized – from an idea to black and white and eventually ready for printing and for you to perform. Most importantly, the law requires that you must have the author’s permission to use his or her writings in any format.

What can you do after purchasing the scripts?

By purchasing the script, you purchase the license to use it in the following terms. Please read these terms carefully. All purchases are final and there is no refund.

The purchase of each script grants you the right to perform as many times as you want within the context of one organization – for example, a school, a church, a non-profit organization. Electronic transmission or photocopying of the script is allowed only to the production team, that is, the director, the actors, the stage crew, etc., within the same organization.

The license is not transferrable and you are not allowed to transmit, duplicate in any form, or share the script with any other organization. You may only make one video recording of the performance for record purposes. Under no circumstances are you allowed to sell any video recording of your performance or are you permitted to share any video recording via the internet. If you are interested in producing my script as a film, please contact me for further terms and conditions.

The license is also for non-profit performances only. If you are planning a for-profit performance, you must contact May Fung for approval and information on royalties due.

Finally, please kindly acknowledge the author in all your printed promotions, pamphlets, programs, etc.

Can we change the script?

Minimal changes, for example, on characters’ names, locales, some sentence structures to suit your dialects (especially for Cantonese); are allowed. You may also condense some long passages within reason. However, you are not allowed to add plot lines, add characters, or change the plot. Please respect the creative process of the author. If you need to change so much, may be you should consider looking for another script, or better yet, write your own script.

為甚麼劇本要收費呢?

作為一個藝術工作者和劇作者,創作是我的生計。一個劇本能完美的呈現在紙上去給你使用,是經過多方思考,嘗試及修正的。所有在此網站銷售的劇本亦全是經過演出的測試,有相當成績及可看性的。在法律上,你也必需徵求並得到作者的同意才可以採用其作品。

 

購買劇本後你有甚麼權益?

請看清楚劇本簡介及以下聲明才作購買,劇本出門,恕不退換。

購買劇本後,你可以在你的機構或教會(同一機構或教會),作無限次的演出。你可以用電子傳送或複印方法將劇本分發給演員,導演,後台工作人員等等,但這些人也必需是同一個演出的或機構的。

這一次的購買權並不包括你將劇本用任何方法分享到別的教會或機構。如你需要用錄像方法來拍攝此劇作紀錄和學習所用,請只拍攝一次並只保存一套影片。在任何程況之下,你也不能售賣此錄像或將此錄像放到網路上。如你有計劃將此劇本發展成電影,請再與葉麗春聯絡,商議詳情。

購買權亦只保彰你作非牟利的演出,如你計劃公開發售門票,你必需先得作者同意,並商議版權利益分配等等的細節。

 

我可否修改劇本呢?

如有需要,你可以將一些人物的名字,發生背景及說話語氣作微量的調整(例如廣東話的調整)。如你覺得劇本有些段落太長,你可以刪去,但不能加詞。對,只可刪,不能加 – 絕對不能加人物,轉換劇情發展或加劇情。如你需要這麼做,你不如考慮找別的更適合的劇本或自己去寫你的劇本。太多的更改和調動會令劇本失去原意,亦對作者不甚尊重。
