Script Library

A new feature on the new website – a library of some of the screenplays I have most enjoyed reading over the last few years.  I hope you will enjoy these – for the most part so far unproduced – scripts as much as I did.

The purpose of this script library is primarily to educate and inspire – to illustrate how dramatic writing can work at its best, to inspire your own writing and to give you some examples of brilliant screenwriting – whether that’s about story, character, dialogue – or even just more fundamental but important aspects of how best to present your screenplay on the page.

I must stress – these screenplays are here for you to read and enjoy – but it is illegal to copy and distribute these scripts. If you have any further interest in any of these scripts or would like to know more, please e-mail me.

I will be regularly adding to this script database so please keep checking back for new additions. Enjoy!

Please note that all scripts included here are fully protected by copyright.
All scripts are available only for private, personal use and not for any other form of wider distribution.

Any enquiries concerning the rights for professional or amateur stage production, broadcasting, readings etc should be made to philip.shelley@script-consultant.co.uk who can put you in touch with the writers/literary agents concerned.

Scripts reflect the time at which they were written and may include language, content or characters which you find offensive.
