Senior’s 2009 one-act play to be featured in exhibition

By Michael Rothberg

The script of Ben Sprung-Keyser’s ’11 one-act play “What All School Children Learn” will be featured in the “Art.Write.Now” Exhibition, a show composed of 100 pieces of art and writing selected from the winning submissions of the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards.

Sprung-Keyser’s play was also selected for and performed in the 2009 Playwrights Festival.

During the 2009 Festival, his play won the Scholastic award for the Dramatic Script category.

Past winners of the Scholastic Art & Writing Award, founded in 1923, include painter Andy Warhol, authors Truman Capote and Joyce Carol Oates and actor-director Robert Redford.

The exhibition, sponsored by The Scholastic Art & Writing Award and the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, will open May 7 at the Lineage Dance Performing Arts Center in Pasadena.
