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

Dying for Respect

New Writers Now

How can writing reveal patterns and possible solutions to youth violence?

Join us for an unforgettable evening of student writing about street violence.  Young Playwrights’ Theater has teamed with youth throughout the city to tell the stories of people who are drawn into neighborhood and gang violence, those who fight to resist it, and those whose lives are irrevocably changed by the violence in their communities.  Dying for Respect is presented as part of YPT’s New Writers Now series of student plays performed in a staged reading by professional actors, followed by community discussion. “Dying for Respect” is made possible by support from the Citywide Coordinating Council on Youth Violence Prevention.
Featuring Writing by students from:
