PlayWrite is a wonderful nonprofit that works one on one with kids at the edge. During a two week workshops students write a short play composed of characters that can only be inanimate objects or animals. The students then direct professional actors in their loosely autobiographical work. Seeing their work played out in front of them, students are helped to move past the issues holding them back. In many cases the creative energy tapped into to create the play open the floodgates on the river of life.

PlayWrite provides a great opportunity for youth by giving them voice and a creative outlet to work through hardships. The coaches know how to encourage them and when to push just a little to let them tell their stories using inanimate objects and aminals. I love watching the youth introduce their work and how they react seeing it brought to life by professional actors and musicians.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing what objects or animals the youth use in their work to symbolize different characteristics or emotions. Then watching an actor bring to life something like a parking meter, a canoe with a leak or a spatula is amazing.

PlayWrite has a transformative effect on the kids involved. To watch their faces and body language change during the performances and to hear their comments afterwards is amazing. The plays can pierce your heart with their intense emotions.
