Let us entertain you!
Come to our fundraiser:
See standout performances. Witness the premiere of “Living Proof”, a short performance that pairs a PlayWrite graduate with an adult who’s “Been There, Done That, and Survived” reading each other’s pieces.
Enjoy delightful libations and appetizers, bid on this and that, make a donation you can note on your 2019 tax form, and— help us reach the next hundred kids who need PlayWrite.

Playwriting Workshops That Transform
PlayWrite’s professional coaches and actors work one-on-one with youth at the edge.
Participants write and direct their own character-driven plays. By creating powerfully original art, writers learn profound emotional tools to trust themselves, manage their trauma, and heal.
Our ten-day intensive workshops run throughout the year.

The hippocampus, derived from the Greek word for seahorse, is a key anatomical structure in the brain. Amazingly complex, neuroscientists continue to discover more about how it functions: there is general agreement that the hippocampus plays a central role in the human capacity to turn personally experienced events and their associated emotions into memories. The PlayWrite workshop - combining written expression with movement - provides an opportunity for young people to unscramble complex emotional experiences into narrative form.
