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

Theater of the Next Generation

New Writers Now!

We examine new directions for theater with our April event Theater of the Next Generation.  Students from the Young Playwrights’ Workshop

present new pieces that examine the intersection of new media and theater and experiment with theatrical form.

New Writers Now! features professional actors in a staged reading of student plays fresh from the classroom, followed by a community discussion about the plays with the playwrights. Young writers discover the value of sharing their work and recognize that the community is invested in the stories they tell.
