Intern Playwright Ten-Minute Plays

7/27/2019 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM ET

Celebrate our six Conference interns as they share plays they've created under the tutelage of PlayPenn Foundry Leader John Yearley.

Where: 
The Proscenium Theatre at The Drake located at 302 S. Hicks Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102.

When: July 27, 2019 at 2:00PM

Each summer we invite six interns from across the country to learn the ins and outs of new play development by working alongside our Conference playwrights. In addition to taking on a supporting role in every area of our work, they have the opportunity to write, revise and rehearse a 10-minute play written under the instruction and guidance of playwright and Foundry Leader, John Yearley. During the final week of the Conference, we have the pleasure of hearing six ten-minute plays, written by PlayPenn’s 2019 Interns and performed by Conference actors. These young artists are the future of the American theatre and their plays are a highlight of each year’s Conference.

Registration for this event is closed.

Cancellation/refund policy

PlayPenn is always working to secure amazing artists to teach our classes and our teachers often go out of their way to fit teaching with us into their busy schedules. Our class sizes are limited to support individual attention, and as such, we are not able to offer refunds if you are unable to attend. So, before you register and pay, make sure you’ve cleared space on your calendar so that you can guarantee your opportunity to work with our master artists! In very extreme circumstances, we may need to cancel a class for reasons beyond our control and will offer full refunds.

A Note From Our Education Department:

 

Sharing your play with the world is an incredible rush—but it’s also unarguably terrifying. After an often isolating writing process, your work is exposed for everyone to see. We know just how vulnerable writers are in these moments, and we’re passionate about helping to navigate them.

 

Here at PlayPenn, we offer our students supportive opportunities to test out new work and hone their craft, providing them with a sense of camaraderie at all stages of their writing careers. Our PlayPenn classes encourage writers to bounce ideas off of one another, commiserate about industry challenges, and be inspired by the world-class writers and industry experts leading each course. We apply this same ethos to The Foundry, our intensive writers group for emerging Philadelphia playwrights; and to our public readings of our students’ works in progress throughout the year.

 

By taking a PlayPenn class, you become part of a welcoming community of experienced playwrights, avid playgoers, recent grads, and everyone in between. Please join us!
