Theatre-for-Teens should be awesome.
It should be better because it’s performed by teens. It should be artistically vibrant.
It should be entertaining while being about something. It should never be stupid or condescending. It should elevate. It should be bold.
It should be art!
THE PROCESS: Most of my theatre-for-teens work is initially written for and with a group of young people. We use devising techniques, kinesthetic dramaturgy, and “cold performances.” I then adapt the scripts for others to use.
