FREE! Young Playwrights' Workshop Presents: The Art of Understanding

YPT’s 2014-15 season ends with The Young Playwrights’ Workshop Presents: The Art of Understanding!

This original play, written and performed by YPT’s after-school theater ensemble, addresses issues of mental health through a variety of genres and perspectives. Consisting of three vignettes woven together with poetry and monologues, The Art of Understanding explores mental illness via pieces ranging from the confessional to the theatrical and from the comic to the romantic.

Part of the 2015 Source Festival, presented by CulturalDC.

What is the Young Playwrights’ Workshop?

Young Playwrights’ Theater’s award-winning student theater ensemble! Members work together to create, develop, rehearse and perform an original play. A professional teaching artist helps the ensemble develop a foundation of theater skills that form the basis for creating new work. Students learn a diverse set of skills: improvisation, stage combat, clowning, solo performance and playwriting. The resulting performance is held at a professional theater in the DC area and attended by a public audience.
