Swann,
 
I am reluctant to post works online given feedback from authors and a few literary agents that I know. Posting work is a loose form of publication, hence a publisher cannot gain ‘first rights’ for publication. Hence the hatred of print on demand companies such as Publish America.
 
This is not the greatest worry for a playwright aiming at a Broadway production, but if you end up looking for productions by people that are reading your scripts (hence buying them from a bookstore) it ‘could’ pose a real barrier.
 
But as for someone stealing your work… That is so unlikely! If someone did, they would have to be seriously dumb!
