Cedarbrook student’s work to be performed at Philly Young Playwrights event

Natalie Harmon-Ward, an eighth-grader at Cedarbrook Middle School, recently had her monologue “A Witch in the Woods” selected to be performed at the Louis Bluver Theater in Philadelphia next weekend as part of the Philadelphia Young Playwrights’ (PYP) “Plays in Process” program. 

Showtimes are Thursday, December 15 at 7:00pm, Friday, December 16 at 7:00, Saturday, December 17 at 2:00pm, and Sunday, December 18 at 7:00pm.

Her piece was selected from over 500 submissions and will be directed by Donovan Lockett.
“A Witch in the Woods” tells the heartbreaking story of a lonely witch who finds a baby on their doorstep. As they wait to see if someone will come back for the baby, they talk about the town and its cruelty in ousting the witch long ago. When night falls and no one has come for the baby, the witch takes the baby in to live with them. 
Tickets are pay-what-you-decide and are available here. For more information about the Philadelphia Young Playwrights, you can visit their website.
