Featuring the Class of 2013 in the Waterwell Drama Program at PPAS.

Waterwell's New Works Lab @ PPAS was created to stimulate the creation of high-quality new plays for young actors by offering emerging and established playwrights the chance to develop their work with the support of professional directors and designers and a cast of exceptionally talented high school artists. This annual workshop series presents stripped down, actor-centric productions that add to the canon of thematically rich, complex and original scripts and roles for student actors.
