Words to the Devised: Legal Strategies for (Co?)Authors of Devised Theatre

Theatre has always been a collaborative process. But what happens when the collaboration expands beyond our traditional definitions? What happens when there are not one or two authors, but five or ten?  How can we best honor contributions of non-authorial contributors within a devised process?  Who is in control? What is there to be control of? How can we assure proper compensation and credit to all of the life of a work created collectively?  These questions have been at the center of a conversation for several years at the Dramatists Guild, where, with a committee of veteran devisers, we have created a Devised Theatre Resource Manual, as well as model agreements.

Please join Dramatists Guild Director of Business Affairs, Deborah Murad, Esq. and Todd London, the Guild’s Director of Theatre Relations (and NET Board Member) for a conversation on the many ways to clarify roles and issues of ownership for devisers and ensembles.
