who wrote it?



A colleague submitted a play to a publisher – it was refused, but subsequently published by another, where it has done well (productions, script sales). Recently, the first publisher published a play by an “up-and-coming” playwright, a play with a synopsis almost identical to my colleague’s play. My colleague asked advice in an online forum and received widely varied tips.

One suggestion was to close the barn door after the horses had fled, but still useful as time goes by, to use increasingly available plaigarism-checking sites.

What would you do in those circumstances?
