Young People's Theatre Presents New Online Play Festival RIGHT HERE, WRITE NOW

Young People's Theatre's "Right Here, Write Now Festival" is a series of live-streamed readings of short new theatrical works created specifically to be performed online. Written by award-winning playwrights Kevin Dyer, Anita Majumdar and Christine Quintana over the past two months, these new plays in development respond to the challenges faced by young people living in a world altered by a global pandemic.

"Part of YPT's programming vision is ensuring we create artistic works that speak to the contemporary lives of young people," said Artistic Director Allen MacInnis. "This rapidly-created, online play festival responds to that need for relevance. We are in the midst of a time of enormous change and the writers of these short plays have all been asked to consider what might we make of this moment?"

Each play, detailed below, will be read live online on YPT's YouTube channel - May 25, 27 & 29 at 7PM - and then made available for viewing throughout the month of June.
