Eldridge has been around since 1906, so they are one of the oldest publishing companies in the United States. What is truly magnificent is how they have stayed up with the times and offer a very user friendly website and "freeviews" of all the plays in their catalog. Personally, Eldridge will always hold a special place in my heart. Not only were they the first to publish one of my plays (The Birthday Spaz), but they also carry the funny one-act comedy, The Night of the Livid Dad by Marc Holland and Michael Davis. This was the play that inspired me to become a playwright myself.
The Da Vinci Cold is one of my most popular plays, and I owe it to their dedicated (and ever expanding) customer base. Teachers have been very faithful to Eldridge over the years, mostly because they offer incredibly knowledgeable and friendly customer service.
