Young Playwrights' Theater inspires young people to realize the power of their own voices.

American Rice

The Smithsonian Institution commissioned Young Playwrights’ Theater to create an original piece on Asian American identity. YPT Program Manager Patrick Torres led six months of workshops with Asian American students through Washington, ranging in age from elementary to high School. Patrick Crowley compiled their writing into American Rice, which was performed at the Smithsonian Institutions’ Discovery Theater in May of 2007.

American Rice was also produced by the Discovery Theater again in the Spring of 2008.
