  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 751)...

    Has anyone attempted to a stage play of Ishmael suitable for schools? I think it would be a great way to reach kids, given a sensitive adaptation of course.

    ...and the response:

    For general information about the dramatic rights to Ishmael, see question number 750, http://www.ishmael.org/Interaction/QandA/Detail.CFM?Record=750.


    In short, one would need permission to publish a dramatic version of Ishmael–for schools or for theaters, it matters not--and this permission is not readily available. On the other hand, Time Warner (which owns the dramatic rights to
    Ishmael) would not be likely to object to someone who mounted a stage play of Ishmael in his or her own school (with no intention of publishing the text of the play).
    This is just an opinion, not a guarantee; a cautious lawyer might advise against it.
