Radnor High School Junior Sophia Kaisermann's Original Play Selected for Philadelphia Young Playwrights' Annual Playwriting Festival
Radnor High School junior Sophia Kaisermann will have her original play "Date/Month/Year" featured as part of Philadelphia Young Playwrights' "New Voices" virtual event on Friday, October 29 and Saturday, October 30. Sophia's play was selected from more than 550 submissions as part of Philadelphia Young Playwrights' Annual Playwriting Festival. New Voices seeks to showcase "fresh new plays from the next generation of writers."
Each year, Philadelphia Young Playwrights invites area students to submit their plays to the Annual Playwriting Festival. Plays are considered by the Literary Committee—a collection of nearly 70 program alumni, artists, staff, teachers, and others—who read and write individualized responses to every play. Literary Committee members recommend a number of outstanding plays to be considered for further consideration by two additional groups of readers, Pre-Final Committee and Final Committee.
Sophia's original monologue "My Next 30 Months" was also named a first-place winner in the Philadelphia Young Playwrights' Annual Monologue Festival.
The public can learn more about how to stream Sophia's play and the six other student works selected for the event at phillyyoungplaywrights.org.
