WGGB and the Dramatists Guild of America are pleased to announce the launch of The Good Neighbour Initiative, an international guest membership program for members of WGGB and The Dramatists Guild of America.
This means that from now on as a member of the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain, when you visit the US to launch a production of your work, your WGGB membership provides you a guest membership and free temporary access to some of the benefits of Dramatists Guild membership for the length of your working visit.
• A named point of contact in the US, who can help you should any difficulties arise.
• Professional advice via the DG Business Affairs department.
• Access to free theatre tickets via our national Playwrights Welcome program.
To access these benefits, you must notify WGGB of your working visit so they can coordinate your membership. Should you need to consult the Dramatists Guild extensively during a production run or find yourself in the United States for work on a regular basis, joining the Dramatists Guild as a member is recommended.
