"New Visionsew Voices … has been a vibrant, driving force in the creation of new plays for young people and families for 25 years … With the groundbreaking work of The Yellow Boat leading the way, the plays here deal with sophisticated themes—race, gender, social justice, class, ability—all in a youth-centered, nondogmatic way. This is the anthology that tells the story of a field that grew up while still embracing the whimsy and wonder of childhood. Long live New Visionsew Voices—here's to the next 25 years!"
