Young Creators Unit

Young Creators Unit

The Young Creators Unit (YCU) is a program designed to give young theatre artists tools for developing their work. Curated and led by playwright, dramaturg and director Jesse Stong, the YCU is a safe, nurturing space for dynamic and diverse emerging artists to explore new works over a 26-week period. The work coming out of this Unit is exciting, beautiful, flawed and authentic. It is filled with possibilities and creative energy.
