PARKING: A $10 parking pass was available for Horton Plaza OR the NBC garage. As I was not certain I was going to make it on time, I chanced Horton Plaza and was delighted with the validation and pass.

Parking in the parking structure can be a bit confusing. Fortunately found a security guard. When I told him where I thought I had parked, he explained there was another area with similar markings and then directed me there. Also the parking structure has recently reduced hours of free validated parking from 3 or 4 hours to one. So the next time you drive to this venue and plan to park in the structure, verify if the performance provides parking validation for the entire duration of the show.

A very well written, directed and acted mature work by a 19-year old playwright. Very impressive. Highly recommend

Description

The work presented in the annual festival of Plays by Young Writers springs from the imaginations of playwrights under age 19, the winners of the California Young Playwrights Contest. Scripts are evaluated in two age groups – winners age 14 or under receive readings, while the others work with Playwrights Project to stage full productions of their scripts. The older playwrights spend months on revision, guided first by writing professionals and later by questions from the artists mounting the plays.

Tues, Feb 23 7:30pm Re-Drowning Ophelia, Talkback with the Playwright (Mature themes/language; For ages 17 and older.)

Fri, Feb 26 7:30pm _What All School Children Learn, Funny Little Thing, The Tale of Jack, The Funny Bone _

Sat, Feb 27 2:00pm* _What All School Children Learn, Funny Little Thing, The Tale of Jack, The Funny Bone _

Sat, Feb 27 7:30pm Re-Drowning Ophelia, In the Stars (Mature themes/language; For ages 17 and older.)

Sun, Feb 28 2:00pm Re-Drowning Ophelia, In the Stars (Mature themes/language; For ages 17 and older.)

Audiences of all ages enjoy weekend and evening performances, while weekday performances are reserved for school groups. Students are inspired by the teenage writers and intrigued by characters grappling with conflicts much like their own.
