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

The Heights of Change

New Writers Now

How can theater help us bridge the gentrification gap? 

Young playwrights explore rapid change in an urban neighborhood. How can a community grow while honoring its past? How can the needs of long-time residents be balanced against the desires of newcomers?  Join us for an evening of original plays by student playwrights. The Heights of Change
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.
