Congratulations are in order for Bryn Mawr second grader Alia Zerhouni, who was selected as one of the 2017 Center Stage Young Playwrights Festival honorees. Alia's play, entitled "The Little Kiwi," was one of only six plays – out of 600 entries – that was selected to be professional staged and performed at Center Stage. From the play description: "It’s never easy to move to a new place, especially if you’re a Little Kiwi. With grouchy neighbors and funny new smells, nothing feels like home. But with a little courage, and a lot of love, Little Kiwi might just find a way to fit in."

In Bryn Mawr's student-led adaptation, we will be incorporating original multimedia work and contemporary costuming.
