30th Annual Plays By Young Writers Festival

January 24, 2015

Playwrights Project will produce its 30th annual festival of Plays by Young Writers at The Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre in the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center at The Old Globe, January 22 – February 1, 2015. The festival will feature winning scripts from its 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. All contest submissions were evaluated by theatre professionals who volunteered their time and expertise. The evaluation process, focused on a sense of truth, imagination, fresh use of language, and grasp of dramatic structure. All contest participants who requested feedback received individualized written critiques.

The Festival is divided into Program A (appropriate for ages 11+) and Program B (for ages 16+). Each program includes two staged readings and two full productions. Two acting ensembles will present the two different programs, with actors playing multiple roles.
