Young Playwrights Festival
Walden Theatre announces the annual Young Playwrights Festival, featuring a range of plays directed by Julane Havens, Hallie Kirk, Stacey Mead, Sabrina Spalding, and Alec Volz.

The playwriting program was among the first of its kind in the country (established in 1982) and several writers featured in the festival have gone on to work for both stage and screen.
This year’s lineup includes plays by the following young writers:
All public performances take place at Walden Theatre’s recently-updated Nancy Niles Sexton Stage at 1123 Payne Street.
