Young Playwrights for Change: a 'What is Family?' Play Anthology

The seventeen middle school playwrights in this collection participated in workshops on the local and regional level and proved that the deceptively simple question we asked is actually quite complicated. As Adam Burke writes in the Introduction, “It was fascinating to see the question addressed from a variety of social, cultural, and biological perspectives in these plays. As I read the many wonderful plays by these brave new playwrights it became clear that there isn’t one simple answer to this question.” Each play was submitted to the national contest. The winner and runners-up—Life Goes On by Alexia Teagon McCarty, Who Is My Family? by Daniel Coppinger, and Speaking of Sexuality by Alexandria Smith open the collection, making way for all or our talented playwrights.

Young Playwrights for Change: an Anti-bullying Play Anthology

The fourteen middle school playwrights in this collection participated in workshops on the local and regional level and, as Mary Hall Surface writes in the Introduction, “have harnessed their imaginations to create places that are achingly real, as well as wildly imaginative.” Each play was submitted to the national contest. The winning and runner-up plays–Michael Ford’s Nerdy Nate and the Anti-Bullying Quest and Chloe Rust’s Bullies Anonymous–open the collection, making way for all of our talented playwrights.

My favorite part of the whole thing was when the anthology arrived in the mail and I saw the terrific artwork on the cover. The entire experience has been both exciting and rewarding. I also enjoyed reading the other plays.

Michael Ford, Year 1 National Contest Winner

Thank you to The Rose Theater for sponsoring Young Playwrights for Change and giving me this amazing opportunity to write plays and share them with the world.

Paige Wolf, The Rose Theater Regional Winner

Having my play published has been an amazing experience. It has not only opened up so many more opportunities for me, but also opened up a possible career path. I am forever grateful for the memories and skills Young Playwrights For Change has given me.
