Perusal Scripts

Perusal scripts can be ordered to assist you with your play selection. Perusal scripts are the full script, not an excerpt, labeled ‘perusal’ to make it clear that they have not been licensed for production. Please refer to the PYA Script Catalog for information on available titles.
