The PLAYground Festival is a special event where Northwestern’s Purple Crayon Players work with professional Theatre for Young Adults playwrights and undergraduate directors and actors. After a process of working with the plays and developing the play with the playwright, they present these fresh works in a weekend of public staged readings and post- discussions. This year, they will also be having incredible speakers and sessions to explore the meaning of Theatre for Young Audiences.
The festival is taking place Saturday May 9th at Mudlark Theatre in Evanston. See schedule below.
