New Play Festival 2010

New Play Festival 2010

YPT’s 2010 New Play Festival, an annual celebration of bold new voices, was a huge success!

Thank you to all of you who joined us for a workshop production of 8 of the best plays from last year’s In-School Playwriting Program.

During the fall of 2009, YPT worked with over 580 students at 12 schools. Together they completed over 450 plays. Thirty-two of these plays were recommended for the reading committee, made up of professional theater artists. We hope you will join us as we honor and celebrate the incredible work of these young people.
