WHAT IS P.P.F? Last year's inaugural Playwrights' Playground Festival was an online summer showcase of new works from playwrights ages 16-22, this year we are LIVE! Four plays were chosen from multiple submissions from various playwrights around the U.S. These scripts were each given a live zoom reading that paired professional actors and directors with the youth playwrights in order to explore their script in more detail and rehearse for the reading. The scripts are also read, discussed, and watched by our selected Youth Panel and a vote is made as to what script moves onto more development. There is also a second vote, YOU, our audience gets to vote as to what script YOU want to see move forward!
Information can be found on our FaceBook (@Playwrightspf) or Instagram (@renew_productions) and be sure to check out last years recorded readings on ReNew's YouTube Page (CLICK HERE)
Thank you to all of the AMAZING artists who helped make our first Playwrights' Playground Festival a success with over 40 artist and 500 views!
