Founded in 2010, Writopia Lab’s Worldwide Plays Festival is an annual Off-Broadway festival of one-act plays written by playwrights ages 6 to 18 and produced, designed, directed, and acted by New York theater professionals.
Thanks to the support of generous donors, Writopia Lab's Worldwide Plays Festival is now in its eleventh season 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! Comedies, musicals, monologues, historical dramas, tear-jerkers, and thought pieces — all written by the talented young playwrights of tomorrow.
We are deeply grateful for the support we received from Worldwide Pants, David Letterman's production company, from 2011 through 2015. Since David Letterman's retirement, we have relied on support from others who help us bring professional productions to the work of our young and teen playwrights from all backgrounds each year. Please help us continue to bring our young writers’ works to life. We cannot continue to provide this opportunity each year without your support.
