**** Recommended **** The first time I went to see the Young Playwrights Festival, I didn’t know what to expect. That first visit was wonderful, so I was sure this one should be just as good. Guess what – it was more than good – it blew me away! Although each of the four winning plays had a common theme, ‘assumptions’, they couldn’t have been more diverse. I give Pegasus Theatre Chicago and the 30th Young Playwrights Festival 4 Spotlights.
The 30th Young Playwrights Festival runs through January 29th at Chicago Dramatists, 1105 W. Chicago Ave., Chicago. Please note: theatre entrance is around the corner at Aberdeen & May Streets. Running time is two hours with an intermission. Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm; with weekday student matinees. Tickets range from $18-$30.
Metered street parking is available. Do not park in the lot next to the theater, you will be towed! FYI (866) 811-4111 or www.pegasustheatrechicago.org.
