Playwrights Project presents its 30th annual festival of Plays by Young Writers at The Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre in the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. The festival will feature winning scripts from the California Young Playwrights Contest for ages 18 and under.
Contest winners were selected from 581 plays submitted by students from across the state. Four scripts will receive full professional productions, and four scripts will receive staged readings in this highly regarded festival of new voices. The Festival is divided into Program A (appropriate for ages 11+) and Program B (for ages 16+).
This year’s older writers explore family reconciliation, and the younger writers primarily focus on what makes meaningful friendships. Adult audiences will be moved by the sophisticated ideas on the minds of teenage writers, and students will be intrigued by characters grappling with conflicts much like their own.
