Looks like the neighborhood is becoming a hot spot for young writers -- there are two recent articles on different groups teaching youth to write plays. One group, reported in the Post, about Young Playwrights' Theater where kids write plays.
There's also one on WAMU (scroll down) called Paso Nuevo, or "New Step." They have a play called La Catorce (which means 14) about 14th Street that is this Sunday at the GALA Theater.
Pretty cool to see this sort of thing taking off!
