Theater Review: “Plays by Young Writers”

Four playwrights see their works given full productions, while the two youngest winners get staged readings of their works.

A strange warehouse where you can take something you want, but you must leave something of equal value; a satire on gentrification and bias in the tech industry; the horrors of a refused “promposal” and a farce about formerly incarcerated friends who reunite as they re-enter society are the themes of four of this year’s winning Plays by Young Writers.

Theater Review: "The Lion"

Benjamin Scheuer wrote and stars in The Lion

This is the story of a boy, his father and the music that both bound and separated them.

It all started with the gift of a “Cookie-tin Banjo” from his guitar-playing dad, who could have been a musician himself but instead became a mathematician and academic.
