Plays by Young Writers Festival

Plays by Young Writers

Plays by Young Writers, our annual festival of plays by winners of the California Young Playwrights Contest, features full professional productions at a renowned theatre in San Diego. The festival entertains viewers of all ages and provides an intensive learning experience for the young writers as they work alongside experienced artists and technicians. Student matinees give hundreds of young people their first chance to “go to the theatre,” where they often meet characters grappling with conflicts much like their own, in plays praised by local critics. Nationally known dramatists whose first plays were staged in the festival include Karen Hartman, Jim Knable, Josefina López and Annie Weisman.
