    Nearly 400 middle and high school students submitted original one-act plays to the Young Playwrights Contest. Out of these scripts, only six works have been picked to be professionally staged by the City Theatre at this year’s EQT Young Playwrights Fest. These young creators explore romance, fantasy, the future, and the past in their single-act masterpieces. See the winning plays brought to life.

  • Wed., Oct. 23, 7-10 p.m.
    Stewart Copeland is best known as the drummer of The Police, where he pioneered an idiosyncratic style that melded reggae rhythms with punk, rock, and pop. (He was also in a very strange band called Oysterhead with Phish's Trey Anastasio and Primus' Les Claypool, just FYI.) But he's an equally prolific composer for films, audiobooks, and video games, including Spyro the Dragon and Wall Street. Learn more about his remarkable life and career at An Evening with Stewart Copeland, at which he'll workshop his new piece Satan's Fall with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh (MCP) and speak with local DJ Russ Rose (WDVE) and MCP's music director Matthew Mehaffey. If you have any burning questions, there's a Q&A portion at the end, though it's probably best to keep Sting out of it.

  • Oct. 23-25, 10:15 a.m.
    The Poetry Project will explore 12 poems from Edgar Allan Poe during an event at the Trust Arts Education Center. The works come alive during Master of the Macabre, a 90-minute interactive, multi-media production that uses music, light, sound, and movement to depict the beauty and horror of Poe’s writings. The show also invites audience members to play a role in the show by contributing their own interpretations of the text.
