2013 Young Playwrights Festival

October 5-6, 2013

City Theatre's annual Young Playwrights Festival features six one-act plays by vibrant, young voices. This year's festival showcases diverse theatrical storytelling, including crisis in a post-apocalyptic radio station, adventures in the Amazon, a spirited holiday period piece, and more. Subjects tackled range from teen depression to consumerism, with poignant moments of nostalgia and flashback woven throughout.
