The Dwight/Edgewood Project, presented by Yale Rep and Yale School of Drama, is an annual after-school program in which New Haven middle school students spend the month of June learning about theatre and writing original plays under the guidance of graduate student mentors from the School of Drama. The program, which aims to foster positive self-esteem, self-awareness, and self-respect, includes one-on-one mentoring, theatre games, numerous playwriting exercises, and an overnight retreat to Camp Wightman in Griswold, Connecticut. The program concludes with public performances of original one-act plays written by the middle school students, which are designed, directed, and performed by their Yale School of Drama mentors.
