33rd Annual Young Playwrights Festival
January 8-24, 2020 | The Getz’ Courtyard Theatre 72 E. 11th Street
The season kicks off with our professional production of winning plays from the annual playwriting competition for high-school-age scribes in Chicago. Three one-act plays will be showcased in tandem. The second oldest such festival in the country, this annual tradition regularly receives over 500 submissions from students throughout the area. From those, the winning playwrights are chosen to join with professional artists to workshop and stage their scripts.
Be sure to witness the amazing results and enjoy an evening of theater from tomorrow’s theater stars.
