The Delaware Young Playwrights Festival (DYPF) is a program designed to provide an outlet for DE students grades 8-12 to get the professional playwright treatment! From standards-based feedback on first-round drafts to thorough workshops with industry professionals, playwrights selected in DTC’s festival bring their ideas from page to stage.

The five playwrights of these plays were selected as finalists in the 2018-2019 Delaware Young Playwrights Festival (DYPF). The finalists will participate in a series of playwriting workshops with professional theatre artists from Delaware Theatre Company to further refine their writing and ready their works for a free public showcase performance on March 7, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. on the DTC stage.
