Virtual On-Demand Experiences

Performance and Lesson | Scenes at Home with Playwrights Project

Collect stories across generations! Through a lesson and materials created by professional writers from Playwrights Project, families can learn how to write short monologues and scenes shaped from interviews with loved ones. We encourage you to reach out to seniors in your family or community, and anyone can write their own story as well!

During the summer, young writers were invited to submit their short monologues and plays inspired by conversations with their loved ones. Three scenes were selected to be performed by professional actors at home during quarantine.
