Writing Incredible Theatre for Young Audiences (as well adults)

with playwright Lauren Gunderson

Wednesday 29 April 2020

Playwright Lauren Gunderson presented Writing Incredible Theatre for Young Audiences (as well adults) live-streamed on the global, commons-based, peer-produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Wednesday 29 April 2020 at 12 p.m. PDT (San Francisco, UTC-7) / 2 p.m. CDT (Chicago, UTC-5) / 3 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC-4).

A conversation with some of the best playwrights out there about their work writing for young audiences! Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) can often be mistaken for silly plays for kids (that make adults cringe), but these three continue to redefine what TYA can be and do. I think we all agree that kids (and their adults) are sophisticated audiences who want stories about real, emotional, meaningful topics. (These kids also occasionally enjoy the good poop joke, but who doesn't). Truly we are giving some kids their very first experience of live theatre... and we want it to be incredible.

Join Idris Goodwin, Karen Zacarias and Jacqueline Goldfinger as we talk family theatre!
