The Write Way

Program description

Bring FST to your school for a  play that will inspire your students to write plays of their very own! In this interactive experience, your students will learn the ingredients of a play and see a brand-new one created (using their OWN ideas) right before their eyes. More than just a performance, The Write Way includes up to eight in-class workshops to get your students writing. All students are encouraged to submit their plays to FST’s 2023 Young Playwrights Festival to be considered for a professional production in the spring. Available to tour to your school beginning October 12.
