Kids Writing Plays

Raleigh's Burning Coal Theatre Company premieres five new one-act plays written by high school students this weekend as part of KidsWrite, a festival that provides young writers the opportunity to get their work professionally produced, acted and directed.

The show opens tonight at 7:30pm. Host Frank Stasio talks with three young playwrights: Miles Ndukwe,a graduating senior from Millbrook High School; Michelle McGoogan, a junior at Enloe High School; and Sophia Holmes, a freshman at Research Triangle High School. 

They are joined by Burning Coal director of education Jonathan Fitts who coordinates the project.

Anita Rao is an award-winning journalist and the host and creator of "Embodied," a live, weekly radio show and seasonal podcast about sex, relationships & health. She's also the managing editor of WUNC's on-demand content.
