Roundabout Youth New Original Works (RYNOW)  is a space for creative youth to collaborate, devise, and share original theatre.

We welcome all theatre makers in NYC and beyond who are currently enrolled in high school to join a theatrical devising process in a virtual space. Use your imagination to create a world of your own and submit your work as playwrights, designers, and actors.

All participants will come together for a live virtual sharing and cast party.

What if a new planet was discovered and you were chosen to venture there?

Registration Deadline: May 15

Submission Dates: May 4–15

Live Sharing and Cast Party: May 18
