Im working on a new play so we are printing scripts for actors. Should these be single or double sided?

Doing single-sided uses less paper, but doesn't leave much room for actors to make notes for themselves. Double-sided is more environmentally-friendly, but if you have script changes it's harder to do replacement pages.

I tend to think single-sided is better, especially with a play where you're going to have a lot of script changes. If I'm printing extra copies to have in the rehearsal room or backstage, I do those double-sided.

I typically ask my cast which they prefer. I know some of them want the backside of the sheet blank for taking notes, but some are very environmentally conscious and prefer to save a few trees.
