Junior’s Play Debuts at Writopia’s Theater Festival

Zoe S., (Class of 2014) is having her theatrical debut this weekend at The West End Theater on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Her play, “Soulmates”, which she wrote last summer in a workshop sponsored by the Writopia Lab, centers on the issues confronting a married couple. Zoe submitted her play to Writopia’s January Theater Festival and she is one of five playwrights in the 12-16 age category to have her work staged.

Zoe attended a rehearsal last week and admired the performance of the two professional actors cast in her play. “They understand the characters I have created and they are really able to bring these characters to life,” she said.
