This year's play was "Selfie," written by Bradley Hayward. The plot features eight high school seniors as they prepare for their futures facing bullies, parents, peer pressure, serious illness, and their own self-judgment. As they document their year, one click at a time, they come to realize life is not what other people see; it's about the pictures they have of themselves.
"Selfie" is produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc., of New York City. The play will be available for streaming for free at a later date.
