This summer's six playwrights, ranging in age from 15 to 19, have written original plays dealing with weighty topics such as depression, self-esteem, alcoholism, grieving and media mind control. The rising stars stage public readings of their plays in groups throughout the weekend on the Alley's Neuhaus stage. Today's offerings include Jacob Penzell's The Demonstration Mouse, Carmen Brown's Remote and Camille Battle's Get Confident, Stupid!
