Extending the 2005 pilot program to two new schools, ITLP returned to Tanzania in the summer of 2006. A team of noted American theatre artists and educators conducted three two-week playwriting and theatre workshops for 60 secondary school students at The Akeri School, Nshupu School and Nkoanrua School in the Arusha area of Tanzania.
The workshops culminated in a series of performances of three original plays written and performed by the students for the village communities.
