What is Wrights of Spring?
Wrights of Spring is a free, school-wide, student-driven annual celebration that showcases new work by The Theatre School playwrights. The two-week festival features new work readings written, directed, and performed by Theatre School students. This is the chance for everyone to come together to see the work by the next generation of playwrights.
The festival runs from May 17th through May 29th. Since its inception in 1996, Wrights of Spring has showcased plays of over 200 playwrights. The festival aims to celebrate our students and the wonderful work they have created.
What is Riots of Spring?
The Riots of Spring are the hilarious counterparts interspersed amongst the play readings occurring over the course of the festival. Entirely student produced and cast by the Comedy Arts majors, these 15-60 minute performances range anywhere from sketch shows, improv, standup, and more! With a dozen riots popping up over the course of Wrights of Spring there’s plenty of opportunities to see some great comedy.
What is Playwrights Central?
Join us in the Healy Rehearsal Hall for good old-fashioned summer camp fun this year during Wrights of Spring. Playwrights Central is the festival hub where there will be games, crafts, performances, and group activities just like you had at summer camp minus the lack of showers and teen angst. Keep an eye out in between shows for these mini-installations!
