Eight talented young writers chronicle our coming of age in this collection of winning one-acts from the New Voices competition. Whether it's lampooning teen rites of passage like college admissions or the dreaded driver's test, exploring relationships with families, friends and would-be significant others, or taking on serious issues like mental health and eating disorders, these playwrights pull no punches and write with honesty about the world in which they find themselves.
