New Writers Now!

How can we create tomorrow today?

Join the creative conversation!


“We need to cultivate innovation and creativity now to face the problems of the future,” says David Andrew Snider, Producing Artistic Director and CEO of Young Playwrights’ Theater. “With Green Growing and Original, YPT celebrates the innovative spirit of our young writers, and gives them a forum to explore new ideas.”  



features professional actors in a staged reading of student plays fresh from the classroom, followed by a community discussion about the plays with the playwrights. Young writers discover the value of sharing their work and recognize that the community is invested in the stories they tell.

Young Playwrights’ Theater teaches students to express themselves clearly and creatively through the art of playwriting.



YPT’s New Writers Now! Green Growing and Original is presented in association with the Student Conservation Association, the DC Chapter of the Sierra Club and Cool Capital Challenge.
