Summary: this free OOo Writer 3.x (+2.x) template will format your theater/stage play script.
Based on the original Screenwright(R), a template that won a cash award [details] from Sun Microsystems!

Here's a step-by-step primer for obtaining the template,
which contains complete instructions, along with other goodies:

1) Download and install the latest free suite.
2) If you have a slow connection, make sure to use the "MD5 checksums" link on the right of that download page, in conjunction with a download manager program (I used and clicked Advanced, Integrity).
3) Then download the free template by clicking the "Get it!" button, below. (Trouble? Try downloading from Templates or using Chrome, Safari or Firefox.)
4) Save the template in OOo's Templates folder. I put mine here:
or here:
  C:\Program Files\ 2.4\share\template\en-US
(find your own path in OOo Writer by clicking Tools, Options,, Paths, Templates).
5) Open OOo Writer and click File, New, Templates and Documents, Templates, My Templates (double-click), Scr4 (double-click).
6) Write your play!
