“It’s okay to speak up for yourself ... even if you’re going through some stuff.” - Faith, age 10

When we had to suspend operations in March 2020, we were about to premiere our latest Playmaking production. Now, those plays will be presented on Zoom in a two part production, with Part I on Thursday, January 28, 7PM. This episode features four of our young playwrights reflecting on their experiences and inspirations in creating SMOKE & MIRRORS, The Tricky Plays, Part I.

A production of The 52nd Street Project, a non-profit arts education organization working with children (ages 9 - 18) in Hell’s Kitchen in Manhattan. The Project brings kids together with adult artists to create original work for the theater. The PROJcast offers a behind-the-scenes view of the work of the Project as the kids create and explore theater as well as other art forms, such as song, dance, poetry, film and more. Long term-mentoring relationships form the basis of much of the Project’s work, and these episodes will feature reporting, stories, performances and interviews with kids and adults.

The 52nd Street Project is supported by The Altman Foundation, & The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation.
