As part of our Play by Play programs for adult playwrights, we have partnered with Cygnet Theatre to produce its third annual Playwrights in Process: New Play Festival. Four playwrights were slected from 163 submissions.

The festival introduces San Diego playgoers to new works and offers a series of workshops designed to introduce curious audiences to the art of new play development. Facilitated talk-balks with the playwright follows each of the readings.

Plays by Young Writers





This was not our first live theatre presentation but is our favorite so far! The clearly defined characters made it very easy to follow and identify with ... great way of dealing with an important topic...
An excellent production!
