Join us in the culminating Teens WRITE (Writing, Reading, and Investigating Theater Everywhere) project, a Ten-Minute Play Festival!
Teens WRITE is a three-month program that meets weekly, April through July 2018, in which students, ages 13 to 17, will write, revise, cast, direct, and produce original plays culminating in a Ten-Minute Play Festival.
Led by FABIOLA R. DECIUS, a local Boston playwright, teens will learn the basic elements of playwriting, how to critically respond to other’s work in a positive and reassuring setting, steps in rewriting and revising, criterion for auditioning and casting a play, and directing techniques.
Additionally, teens will demonstrate a general understanding of theater-related jobs with guest appearances from local directors, actors, dramaturges, stage managers, and theater designers (set, costume, and sound).

Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
