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.
Each public performance, indicated below as either a Middle School or High School show, features three one-acts from the 2013 Young Playwrights Contest winners.
