Philadelphia Young Playwrights

Philadelphia Young Playwrights (PYP) assists students in Philadelphia area schools tell their stories through theater. Working in partnership with individual schools, PYP puts teaching playwrights together with students, and stages some of those works for the school and the general public. Center support is enabling PYP to develop a plan for a new online platform that will help them work and engage with students more effectively, and maximize the impact of programming.
