Eight, new plays written and created by student writers premiere at the 2020 Young Playwrights Festival. The Walden Theatre Conservatory Playwriting Program engages young artists, from ages 5 to 18, through extracurricular classes in acting, directing, playwriting, stagecraft, dance and beyond. Seven of the program’s graduates went on to attend The Juilliard School in New York, with others attending Yale University and other elite institutions. This year’s playwrights include Jessie Burke, Valorie Dingman-Root, Laura Gibson, Atticus Haden, Sophia Hyde, Jordan Moore, Leilani Owen and Eli Turner.
