My first observation of the PlayWrite process came during a production rehearsal. I silently watched as eight homeless youth directed professional actors in the private and personal plays each had written. I was aware of the extreme circumstances these young adults had endured, yet these were not scared, abused runaways…by the end of the two weeks, after watching professional actors perform their plays, these students walked confidently to the stage to take a bow and absorb the feelings felt from seeing an entire audience giving them a standing ovation. The coaches teach these kids how to get out of their heads and move to a different level, the place of creation, the place of possibility. Here they learn to rewrite their stories, they have control over the outcome and they can safely experience a myriad of emotions. Each of the students walks away transformed. I am deeply devoted and will continue to support this group and their work because what they do changes lives. It works…period! -Kimberly Agnew, PlayWrite, Inc. Donor

Having to stop and think about why is so powerful.”
