Experience some of the newest voices in theater! Young playwrights will be selected following their deep involvement in PCS’s education programming, including in-school playwriting residencies, Teen Council membership, and Teen Academy classes. They will receive PCS commissions to write short scripts for JAW. The work they develop — dynamic 8-10 minute plays — will be performed by actors from the JAW company.
