“The civility we need will not come from watching our tounges. It will come from valuing our differences” -Parker J. Palmer
As we saw the horrific act of insurrection on our Capitol, we introspect further to study the diversity and the art of thinking independently together. Would you rise by lifting others?

A D I E U 2020
We thank our audience, our performers and our supporters from the bottom of our hearts for inspiring us in the most challenging year of our lifetime. Here is the year in review from DFW Play.
With 2020 vision, we look forward to a brighter and safe 2021.
This year is like no other year. So we moved our annual Holiday Cheers to virtual space. Yet there was no dearth of enthusiasm. The Youth Theater kids were recognized for their wonderful contributions. Families and friends reflected on the works we have been doing together despite the challenges. Best part is when someone tells you how DFW Play may have helped during these difficult times.
Raising the toast to a healthier new year!
If you have missed ‘Gentleman’, the short ensemble, here is another chance to catch it at the International Online Bilingual Short Play festival organized by Angels Vision of New Delhi. This is also good opportunity to watch some more awesome plays, that you would not get to see otherwise.
DFW Play presentation on Dec 21st at 8:30am and 8:30pm Central Time.
Happy holidays and stay safe!!
The Importance of Self Expression: DFW Play Youth Theater (Shivani Gupta, Tisha Chaudhuri, Rith Bhattacharyya and Aarush Das) collaborate with Lauryn @ThatAintItPodcast to debate whether the perspective of artist or the viewer is more important. They also talk about what it means to express oneself and where activism is involved. Take a listen to the high schoolers below.
