Lazy Bee Scripts
Authors' Royalties

Royalties for Playwrights
'Almost anyone can be an author; the business is to collect money and fame from this state of being.'
- A.A. Milne
Lazy Bee Scripts pays the author a royalty on every sale in which the author has a stake, including, but not limited to
  • Paper copies of scripts
  • (Downloadable) Master copies of scripts
  • Performance licences
  • Video licences
  • Recordings
Lazy Bee Scripts pays royalties to whomsoever the author designates.
  • The author
  • The author's agent
  • The author's literary estate (for deceased authors whose works are still in copyright)
  • Multiple authors (including collaborations with composers)
    • If so requested, we can pay all royalties to one person
    • If so requested, we can split the royalties between multiple people
As part of the publishing process, Lazy Bee Scripts sets up a publishing agreement with each author.  That agreement sets out the royalties payable to the author (and explains how we calculate).  We may vary that agreement for different authors (and even between works for the same author) based on our view of the market for the proposed work.  (We're a business, we're investing time and money in a work, we need (on average) to make a return on that work or we don't stay in business!)
Because we may vary the terms, we don't publish them here.  Our process is to get the author's agreement to the terms prior to the submission of a work.
