Please note that the copyright laws governing video-recording are extremely complex and that it should not be assumed that any play may be video-recorded for whatever purpose without first obtaining the permission of the appropriate agents.

The fact that a play is published by Samuel French Ltd does not indicate that video rights are available or what Samuel French Ltd controls such rights.

Please contact the Licensing Representative in your area for more information.

Recordings must not be played back in public or otherwise made available either via the Internet or through any other medium.
