YouthPLAYS enlisted fourteen playwrights ranging from established names to exciting newcomers to offer their theatrical insights on this serious problem facing today’s teens. The result is Bullying, Ink. We’ll navigate the dangerous waters of social media (Log Off), take a darkly comic look inside the heads of a trio of bullies (Bully Issues), and meet students who have always been the “other” (There Is No Down). We’ll bear witness to the daily cycle of literal and figurative violence (A Loser Like You), one that can push young people to the ultimate breaking point (Cracked Sky). But we’ll also see the power of hope (Pick Nick) and of people to come together (Her Reign). Join us for these and many more stories, as we laugh a little, perhaps cry a little, and hopefully think a little.

Will Coleman wrote and produced his first play at the age of seven, for his second grade class.  It was about Winnie-the-Pooh, and probably broke a lot of copyright laws.
