Plays are not specifically mentioned in the CLA licence so we have to go by the 5% rule. Each play cannot be regarded as a chapter and also the anthology of poems/short stories rule (ie one poem or short story to a limit of 10 pages) cannot be applied. If the complete play is less than 5% of the book this is fine - the whole play can be digitised.  If not, only part of the play, up to the 5% limit of the book can be digitised. The only other option is to contact the rights holder for their permission.
