Creative people using their creative gifts to speak up for America’s Children.
By on March 29th, 2011

It is wonderful that the message is getting out about kids in the Foster Care System and the struggles that they go through. We are thankful for creative people using their creative gifts to speak up for these vulnerable children.

Most people know that kids in the foster care program face a lot of challenges, but knowing it, and seeing it portrayed, are two different things.

The respected San Diego playwrights project, Plays By Young Writers Festival, is changing things up a bit this year, by including a full production about the foster care system. The play is called Switch.

This new play portrays life experiences of youth in and out of the foster care system. It was written by San Diego playwright Lisa Kirazian and was produced by the Playwright’s Project, a local program that supports the art of playwriting in schools and communities.

The Plays By Young Writers festival takes place at the Lyceum Theatre, April 1-10, 2011. “Switch” opens on April 3 and runs through the following weekend at the Lyceum Theatre.
