Young Playwrights Festival

Each year, a cohort of young playwrights is invited to spend a weekend at the O'Neill with a dedicated creative team to help them develop their short plays based on the principles and techniques of the O'Neill's renowned National Playwrights Conference. Students receive a rigorous exploration of their work guided by professional artists as well as a script-in-hand public reading of their new play. Donations Welcomed!
