In response to Center Stage’s My America project—where 50 leading American playwrights were asked to answer the question “What is my America?”—Center Stage opens this question up to the creative minds of tomorrow. 

Students in grades K-12 throughout Maryland were invited to submit monologues exploring “What is my America?” and “What is my Baltimore?” 

Honored monologues will be filmed and premiered at the 2015 Young Playwrights Festival. 

All members of the community are invited to the Young Playwrights Festival. The evening is free and open to the public, and will include an awards ceremony recognizing honorees, staged readings of selected plays, screenings of My America/My Baltimore monologues, and a reception in honor of all of the students who submitted scripts.
