About the Festival:

ThinkTank’s TYA Playwrights Festival is a developmental program dedicated to providing a working forum for progressive and forward-thinking TYA productions for today’s theatres. The goal is a collaborative workshop, giving our audiences larger exposure to new works, as well as offering playwrights an opportunity to get feedback during the development process. This year’s finalists were selected from more than 300 plays submitted from across the county.


The pieces selected to our Gen Next Festival are short plays by High-School aged playwrights from the Tampa Bay area, one of the many ways ThinkTank dedicates itself to uplifting the next generation of theatre artists.
