The plays of eight local middle-school students — written by the young playwrights and designed, produced, and performed by School of Drama students — will be presented on Friday, June 22, and Saturday, June 23, at 7 p.m. in the Off-Broadway Theater, 41 Broadway. The production is part of the 17th annual Dwight/Edgewood Project (D/EP), an annual after-school initiative which pairs the middle-school students with Yale School of Drama mentors, designers, and directors.
