Young Playwrights' Theater inspires young people to realize the power of their own voices.

Young Playwrights' in Progress

Young Playwrights in Progress


Young Playwrights in Progress is an opportunity for young and/or early-career DC-area playwrights to engage in a script-development and workshop reading process of original, not-yet-produced, one-act or full-length plays with Young Playwrights' Theater.

With the help of a reading committee of theater practitioners, YPT will select two playwrights to engage in the 2020-21 Young Playwrights in Progress program.
