Celebrating Community: A New Writers Now! Event

Monday, October 27th

 Washington DC 20009
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Reception at 5:30 PM

The Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute is pleased to support Hispanic and other youth in the District of Columbia by partnering with Young Playwrights' Theater and GALA Hispanic Theatre in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. We are honored to invite the local Washington, DC community to celebrate the importance of the performing arts and its positive influence on our youth.

Celebrating Community, like all events in the New Writers Now! Series, will feature professional actors in a staged reading of student plays fresh from the classroom, followed by a community discussion about the plays with the playwrights. At New Writers Now!, young writers discover the value of sharing their work and recognize that the community is invested in the stories they tell.

The theme of Celebrating Community was chosen to complement this year's Hispanic Heritage Month theme, “Getting Involved: Our Families, Our Community, Our Nation.”

Featured plays will include: Goodbye Past, Hello Future by Vanessa Vatran; Do Dreams Exist? by Rose Stefany Quispe; and The Last Goodbye by Jorge Hernandez. Each play was written by students in YPT's In-School Playwriting Program, and examines the role of community.
