Playwrights Project will produce its 29th annual festival of Plays by Young Writers at The Sheryl and Harvey White Stage in the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center at The Old Globe on March 6-16, 2014.

The festival will feature winning scripts from the California Young Playwrights Contest for ages 18 and under. Contest winners were selected from 165 submissions by students statewide. Scripts are evaluated in two age groups - winners age 14 and under receive readings, while writers age 15-18 work with Playwrights Project to stage full productions of their scripts.

The older playwrights spend months on revision, guided first by writing professionals and later by questions from the artists mounting the plays. Adult audiences are moved by the sophisticated ideas on the minds of teenage writers and students are intrigued by characters grappling with conflicts much like their own.

The Festival is divided into Program A (for ages 11+) and Program B (for ages 16+). Each program includes two-to-three staged readings and two full productions. Two acting ensembles will present the two different programs, with actors playing multiple roles.

Plays by Young Writers is produced by the Playwrights Project in association with The Old Globe.
