JAW Play Reading: Teen Playwrights Showcase

Directed by Margot Bordelon
Written by Natalia Bermudez, Moss Johnson, Aaron Leonard-Graham, Becca McCormick, and Nevaeh Warren

Don’t miss this chance to experience some of the newest voices in theater! These five teen playwrights have been commissioned by PCS to write short scripts for JAW. They were selected following their deep involvement in PCS’s education programming, including in-school playwriting residencies, Teen Council membership, and Teen Academy classes. They have been developing their JAW scripts for the last three weeks, under the mentorship of celebrated Portland playwrights Anya Pearson and Sara Jean Accuardi. This showcase will feature the work they’ve developed — dynamic two-character, 8-10 minute plays — that will be performed by professional actors.

Join us in person at The Armory, or watch the performance online!

  • Performed on the U.S. Bank Main Stage (free; tickets and masks required).
  • Streamed live (free; reserve a ticket for access)
