Playwrights Project Presents Plays by Young Writers

28th Season of winnign plays from the 2012 California Young Playwrights Contest

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 audienes 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.
