Plays by Young Writers Festival- Opening Night 1/12/19


Jan 12, 2019
07:30 PM until 09:30 PM


Playwrights Project welcomes you to the 34th Plays by Young Writers Festival featuring plays written by California students that were chosen through our 2018 California Young Playwrights Contest! Out of over 400 submissions, six students won the opportunity for their plays to be performed at The Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre in the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center at The Old Globe. Three young writers will receive full productions of their plays, and three younger writers will have their scripts presented as staged readings. Join us in celebrating the creativity of this upcoming generation!

Opening Night features all three full productions.
