Young Playwrights Festival

May 8-20

What happens when a professional theater company produces 85 plays written by playwrights ages 8-18?
Plays seriously workshopped at Writopia Lab this school year, and the winning plays from nearly 100 outside submissions, will be professionally produced--performed by professional actors and directed by NY’s elite theater professionals--at the 45th Street Theatre and at 59E59 Theaters in May as part of our 2012 Worldwide Plays Festival.

How Did this Amazing Thing Happen?
This is the third year that Writopia Lab has produced a festival of plays. David Letterman's production company, Worldwide Pants Inc., began funding our annual festival last year. Worldwide Pants has again granted us $50,000 to produce our writers' poignant, entertaining, and sometimes hilarious works!
A huge thank you to everyone involved with the production, especially our directors, Dan and Kara.
