Young Playwrights’ Theater "Write to Dream" a Book off 30 Plays Written by YPT Students at Busboys and Poets 14th & V St, NW
Wednesday, March 27th
6:30pm - 8:00pm

Teaching for Change's Busboys and Poets Bookstore welcomes Students and Staff of the Young Playwrights' Theater to present and discuss their new book, "Write to Dream," at Busboys and Poets
14th & V location. 

"Write to Dream" offers 30 of the best plays written by YPT students from 1995-2012, along with standards-based workshops from YPT’s curriculum to inspire creativity and enhance literacy skills in the classroom. Lesson plans are organized so teachers can easily integrate them into their classroom curricula. 

Since 1995, YPT has taught thousands of students in the Washington, DC region to express themselves clearly and creatively through the art of playwriting. The plays in the book feature stories and characters for all ages, from a science experiment gone hilariously awry to a Chinese immigrant struggling to learn English and graduate high school to an elderly woman facing the gentrification of her neighborhood. This book is for everyone. Read these plays aloud in classrooms across the country, discuss them as a family around the dinner table and read them on your own in quiet moments of inspiration and reflection.
