Lauren Yee and the high school students of the SF Young Playwrights Festival show us the maturity and talent of first-time playwrights as they see their theatrical creations put into performance. The memories of Iranian-Americans are preserved in Taraneh Hemami's work as she prepares for ZeroOne in San Jose. Finally, Rebar Encanment project reminds us that a little humor can help in a time of transition as Southern Exposure revamps their gallery space.
