Vermont Young Playwrights Festival [SIV353]



5/14/14: Last week the 20th Annual Vermont Young Playwrights Festival took over the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts in Burlington for two days. Students from 17 local middle schools and high schools became playwrights, many of them for the first time. After spending each day in workshops, play reading sessions or rehearsals scattered throughout the Flynn, a select number of these 10 minute plays were performed by actors for a community audience.

The festival is co-organized by Vermont Stage Company and the Flynn Center's Education Department in partnership with the Young Writers Project. Eva spoke to some of the playwrights, teachers, directors and actors who were bringing these words to life.
