Temple Theaters Presents: PYP NEW VOICES in partnership with Philadelphia Young Playwrights
Once again, we will be collaborating with Philly Young Playwrights on producing our annual outreach program, that brings Temple Students together with professional directors to perform a curated performance of the best plays by local, budding, high school aged playwrights. The voices are often fresh, raw, and explosive with performances to match!
Bill 1: No Turning Back, Friendship is a Revolution, and From the Bottom of the Ashtray.
No Turning Back- A young girl loses control when she finds out her favorite flavor has been discontinued at the local Dairy Queen.
Friendship is a Revolution- Emily and Imani are best friends entering high school, with different interests, and when one tries too hard to fit in, she accidentally humiliates her friend. A sweet play about friendship and what it takes to repair it when you've done something unforgiveable.
From the Bottom of the Ashtray- A young Black man works as a barker in a run-down night club. One night, he hears a beautiful voice singing- a shy and self-effacing young Black woman who cleans the club. He vows to take care of her and promote her to a major white producer of jazz groups, but the producer has other aims.
Tickets are available here.
