If you’re a reader of The Broadway Hour, then you’re probably a fan of theater. If you’re a fan of theater, then you’d probably love to know more about what goes into the writing process of a play. This is one of the best opportunities for anyone in town to find out the nuts and bolts of what it takes to write a play.

Teenspeak Playwriting Project is a program put together by the Seattle Repertory Theater to give young up-and-coming writers a chance to see an original work of theirs put on stage and shown to the public. Nine writers and around one hundred performers come out from Roosevelt High School and Woodinville High School to have their plays performed in the Leo K. Theater in the Rep. This past Friday was the premier of Death of the All-American Family by Mandi Bossard, Pigeon Platter by Alice Roth, The 17th Floor by Emma Staake and Flight of the T-Bird Episode #54 Attack of the Glarbons by Arman Mohazzabfar.

The four playwrites did an amazing job with the topics they were given and created four very fun and entertaining shows. Their actors, under the direction of (in order of listed show) Scott Koh, Michaela Murphy, Amber Wolfe and Christopher A Dewar came to the plate in a big way and made these shows a wonderful evening of fun, refreshing and raw theater.

So, if you’re looking to have a fun time at the theater and unwind from pretentious hoity-toity shows, definitely check the website and try to RSVP a couple seats for this Tuesday, the 22 at 7:30pm for Teanspeak Playwriting Project presented by Woodinville High School and the Seattle Repertory Theater.
