About the Festival
Writopia Lab’s Worldwide Plays Festival is an annual off-broadway festival of plays written by playwrights ages 6 to 18 and produced, designed, directed, and acted by New York theater professionals. The 2012/2013 season is our fourth festival, and is sure to be our biggest yet, with four showcases in the winter 2012/2013 and a week-long Off-Broadway run in May, at the Clurman Theater, part of Theatre Row on 42nd Street.
Thanks to the support of David Letterman's production house, Worldwide Pants and the Mellam Family Foundation, Writopia Lab's Worldside Plays Festival is now in its fourth year, and is open to more writers than ever before.
The festival includes plays written in workshops at Writopia’s labs across the country and plays submitted to our competition from playwrights around the world! You’ll see comedies, musicals, monologues, historical dramas, tear jerkers, thought pieces--all written by playwrights not yet old enough to vote.
The Season at a Glance Act I: Monthly at the Soter/Lee Blackbox Theater This year, our festival for Writopia's playwrights will run monthly throughout the school year, featuring the latest of our young playwrights' work.
