Here’s what your fellow playwright have to say about PSH:


“PSH was recommended to me by a playwright I looked up to when I was first starting out.   The price was reasonable, and it has been a great tool.  I found a few opportunities that I could take advantage of with the few plays I had written at that time.  Later in the summer I found out I had won a national contest, collecting many hundreds of dollars.  The opportunities are varied and specific, with links provided so time is not wasted frolicking through websites to get to the information you need.  PSH also gives a quick overview of what kind of material people are looking for out there.   It helps me prioritize my work so that I’m offering plays with a better chance of seeing a stage.  I’ve written to PSH with questions, and they were more than responsive, obviously passionate about the playwriting community.  Yes, I highly recommend subscribing to PSH.”

–  Dave Durham, Michigan Playwright
