Devised Theatre Resource Manual
Collaboration Agreement Between Writers and Non-Writers

This model represents a process in which one or more writer(s) (alternatively, principal devisors, delegates, or lead writers) collaborate with one or more non-writers to create a new work. The Devised Theater Committee and Business Affairs Department are proud to announce the availability of four contract models designed specifically for devised theater, a Collaboration Agreement Solely Between Writers, a Preliminary Agreement to Participate, a Collaboration Agreement Between Writers and Non-Writers and a Devised Theatre Production Agreement. Accompanying the contract models is an innovative Devised Theater Resource Manual, which includes, among other things, an explanation of legal principles, discussions about craft, and a glossary of terms.
