Plays by Young Writers
February 18-28, 2010
The work presented in our annual festival of Plays by Young Writers springs from the imaginations of playwrights under age 19, the winners of our California Young Playwrights Contest. Scripts are evaluated in two age groups – winners age 14 or under receive readings, while the others work with Playwrights Project to stage full productions of their scripts. The older playwrights spend months on revision, guided first by writing professionals and later by questions from the artists mounting the plays.
Audiences of all ages enjoy weekend and evening performances, while weekday performances are reserved for school groups. Students are inspired by the teenage writers and intrigued by characters grappling with conflicts much like their own.
The 25th Season of Plays by Young Writers will be produced at The Lyceum Theatre at Horton Plaza in downtown San Diego.
