Young Artists and Writers Project Showcasing Middle School Playwrights at May 12 Festival

Yawp 2018 1

Six short plays written and performed by local middle school students will be presented at Stony Brook Southampton’s Avram Theater on Saturday, May 12, at 7 p.m. as the culminating event of the 2018 Young Artists and Writers Project (YAWP) Middle School Playwriting program. Playwrights for the festival were drawn from YAWP playwriting classes at Bridgehampton, Pierson, Ross School, and Shelter Island.

Tickets to the performance are free. For reservations and more information, email william.chandler@stonybrook.edu.

The Middle School Playwrights Festival represents a collaboration between student playwrights, actors and designers who have been taught and mentored by theater and writing professionals affiliated with Stony Brook Southampton’s MFA in Creative Writing and Literature, which created and sponsors the YAWP programs. Professional directors stage the plays, which encompass an array of genres—from comedies to dramas—with subject matter drawn from the students’ own lives.
