|From the success of|
Matilda on Broadway to the
2015 revival of Annie
in movie theatres, it’s clear that theatre with and for young people has
widespread and enduring appeal. Despite this, there is no contemporary guide
designed for playwriting for youth in professional and educational contexts.
In Playwriting and Young Audiences, Matt Omasta and Nicole B. Adkins put this right. Providing a
range of perspectives, the book collects the practical advice and wisdom of
seventy-five artists and practitioners. It is a deeply poignant account of
those who have dedicated their lives to work that applauds the dignity and
depth of young people.
