Anacostia Playhouse

At the center of our 25th Anniversary season is the 7th installment of Silence is Violence, YPT's original social justice performance series. YPT investigates the impact of arts activism over the series’ 5-year history and the social issues that sparked the youth voices of Silence is Violence. Through a devised, dramatic piece, YPT explores the power of art in the wake of traumatic events and reveals the thoughts, fears and hopes of our young people.
