Right Here, Write Now - YPT’s Online Play Festival
Right Here, Write Now features contemporary playwrights responding to these extraordinary times.
“Part of YPT’s programming vision is ensuring we create artistic works that speak to the contemporary lives of young people. This rapidly-created, online play festival responds to that need for relevance. We are in the midst of a time of enormous change and the writers of these short plays have all been asked to consider - what might we make of this moment?” - Artistic Director, Allen MacInnis
