33rd Young Playwrights Festival

Show Information

The Young Playwrights Festival (YPF) celebrates the 33rd year of inspiring Chicago students to explore their histories, research their communities and mine their personal journeys to write dynamic one-act plays for the stage. YPF is the only event of its kind in Chicago and is the second largest in the country. The winning playwrights’ productions are work-shopped and professional produced with full casts and production teams. The competition received over 500 submissions in 2019 with this year’s selections: PUBLIC IN PRIVATE by Angelina Davila | Directed by Juan Ramirez Lucie is struggling to get into an art college, but is sidetracked by her brother’s problems and her mother’s lack of support. CLAUSE 42 by Henry Williams | directed by Jason A. Fleece George dies and is wrongly sent to the afterlife of a weird cult-like religion and is faced with the prospect of being judged by their ridiculous rules. COBALT by Reba Brennan | directed by ILesa Duncan Vee, a shy 18-year old, seeks solace and adventure on a friend’s couch as an escape from family dysfunction.
