An Interview with Members of PlayWrite

Lisa Loving and Suzanne LaGrande interview Bruce Livingston, Executive Director of PlayWrite, Coach/actor Victor Mack and playwright Jaclyn, from Mt. Scott LC High School.  PlayWrite brings professional coaches and actors together with youth to write and direct their own character-driven plays.  Focusing on  youth at the edge—immigrants & refugees, farm-worker’s children, LGBTQ, homeless, PlayWrite offers workshops where participants use the emotional tools of drama to trust themselves, manage their trauma, and heal. Each workshop participant works one-on-one with their own dedicated coach, trained by PlayWrite to create a play with emotional conflict,  awareness and empathy. For more about PlayWrite, visit: or
