Each year, the majority of Philadelphia Young Playwrights' programming occurs in classrooms throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. Our two main offerings are the Core Program, a long-term residency program customized to individual classroom needs to guide students through the process of writing and revising plays, and Monologue Workshops, a short-term series of classroom visits that guide students through the process of writing monologues. Both programs include actor visits to the classroom, where professionals bring student writing to life to assist in the writing and revision process.
"...STUDENTS today have so many beautiful, painful, unique experiences bottled up inside of them. PYP offers them the chance to share those stories in a safe, constructive, and life-changing way."
