Devised Theatre Resource Manual
Devised Theatre Contract: Preliminary Agreement to Participate

This model agreement should be used when a group of individuals (alternatively, “creators”) begins a collaborative process without first knowing who the authors will be. 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.
