During the Young Playwrights Festival, student playwrights spend two days working collaboratively with a professional creative team consisting of a director, dramaturg, and actors to explore, revise and develop their plays, bringing their written words to life. The Festival will culminate with a script-in-hand public reading of the students' work at 5:00 pm on Sunday, May 8 in the Dina Merrill Theater, Eugene O'Neill Theater Center, 305 Great Neck Road, Waterford; the performance is free and open to the public.
