Local high-school seniors and aspiring playwrights, Addison AntonoffWilliam Miner, and Carter A. Prentiss are the prizewinners of the DDTCo. inaugural Student Playwright Festival. Each playwright was paired with a Houston based playwright as a mentor who worked in tandem to fine-tune the plays and prepare them for production. Each student received a $500 scholarship and were guests of honor as their plays were performed at the MATCH – Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston on June 6, 2018. 

Addison Antonoff, a senior at The High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, presents her ten-minute play, The Mother, The Son, and The Holy Deli.

Carter A. Prentiss, a senior at Dulles High School in Fort Bend County, debuts his play Cassandra about a conversation between two college boys that begins when one—an aspiring journalist—writes about sexual assault. Questions are asked, but the answers are not always what we want to hear.
