PLAYWRITING FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

June 2 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free virtual program for Door County High School Students

WRITING THE 10-MINUTE PLAY FOR #ENOUGH: PLAYS TO END GUN VIOLENCE INFORMATION SESSION

Write On, Door County and Third Avenue Playhouse collaborate on a nation-wide initiative to encourage middle and high school students to write 10-minute plays on the topic of gun violence. Playwright Alexander Genty-Waksberg leads this one-hour information session to answer students question about creating their own plays.
#ENOUGH: Plays to End Gun Violence is a new campaign of theatre activism on a mission to provide middle and high school students with the platform to spark critical conversations about gun violence across the country. The project enables teens to express themselves through storytelling, foster open dialogue in their communities, take on leadership roles, and inspire creative action.
Launched in 2019 by director Michael Cotey, #ENOUGH puts America’s young people at the center of the conversation on gun violence through the transformative power of storytelling.
Beginning in January 2020 as a call for submissions from middle and high school students to write short 10-minute plays on the topic of gun violence, #ENOUGH culminates in an evening of simultaneous staged readings across the country of the most impactful plays on December 14, 2020 – the 8th anniversary of Sandy Hook.

This information session will be held via Zoom and is free but registration is required. To register for this information session, please click here.
