Dear young person:
What's your favorite...
Here at Philadelphia Young Playwrights, we're in the business of creating something from nothing. The words in a play are a blueprint for a three-dimensional world filled with people, places, and things—both ordinary and extraordinary, real and unreal.
No matter your age, where you are from, or what you look like, you can create worlds with your words.
You can create stories that are happy, sad, funny, and exciting. You can explore real places and imagined ones. You can mold something from nothing.
Your voice matters. You matter. And you have the power to shape your own narrative.
If you live in the Greater Philadelphia area, you might encounter us in your classroom, at a performance of a fellow students' play, or you can join us for a class in our building in the city. If you live far away, you can find resources on this website, listen to the voices of your peers from Philly in our podcast, or talk to us on social media (@pyplaywrights).
No matter what, we hope you'll write, and imagine, and create stories. Maybe you'll end up on someone's list of favorites.
