Plays by Young Writers Festival- Opening Night

Plays by Young Writers Festival- Opening Night Playwrights Project presents the Plays by Young Writers Festival featuring the winners of the 2017 California Young Playwrights Contest!

Playwrights Project welcomes you to our Plays by Young Writers Festival featuring plays written by California students that were chosen through our 2017 California Young Playwrights Contest! Out of over 400 submissions, six students won the opportunity for their plays to be performed at The Old Globe Theater. Four young women will receive full productions of their plays, and two younger writers will have their scripts presented as staged readings. Join us in celebrating the creativity of this upcoming generation!
