Our Teen Playwriting Director, Karen Hardcastle, along with guest playwrights, will lead the students in creating a piece for the Teen Playwriting Contest/Project, #ENOUGH, Plays to End Gun Violence. Based out of Chicago, #ENOUGH “call(s) on teens to confront gun violence by creating new works of theatre that will spark critical conversations and incite meaningful action in communities across the country.” Submissions for the 2021 contest are due Summer 2021. On December 19, 2020, Theatricum will host a Watch Party for a reading of the 2020 winners. Join us for the Watch Party and get inspired to create your own piece. This exciting project can serve as a means to learn the fundamentals of playwriting as well as participate in a movement created by their peers.

No charge to view the Watch Party (December 19, 2020 at 4:00 pm). If you would like to see the 2020 winners of this project, please contact Cindy Kania (email@example.com).
