28th season of winning plays from the 2012 California Young Playwrights Contest
Fairy tale characters, a historical figure, and modern day teens pursue their dreams in the intriguing scripts presented in the 28th season of Plays by Young Writers. The stories spring from the imaginations of playwrights under age 19, the winners of the California Young Playwrights Contest. Scripts are evaluated in two age groups - winners age 14 and under receive readings, while writers age 15-18 work with Playwrights Project to stage full productions of their scripts. Playwrights revise their scripts, guided first by writing professionals and later by questions from the artists mounting the plays. Adult audiences are moved by the sophisticated ideas on the minds of teenage writers and students are intrigued by characters grappling with conflicts much like their own.
Each performance includes one staged reading and two full productions,
Except Opening Night which includes all 4 readings.
Additionally, Wolf vs. Pig will be added to the Feb. 8, 7:30 pm performance.
Opening Night Tickets are also sold through Playwrights Project. Call (619) 239-8222 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
