The award from Premiere Stages at Kean University goes to a current student and an alumna.
Recent stagings of ‘Fannie Lou Hamer, Speak On It!’ showed the possibility—and stringent protocols—of pandemic-era live theatre.
At theatres in New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, flexibility is the watchword.
Emily Niemeyer and Emily Conklin become the first winners in the new expansion of the award from 1 to 2 playwrights.
The four plays were selected from a record 659 submissions, a 15 percent increase from the previous record set in 2018.
Liz Kerin and Azure Osborne-Lee each receive commissions for new works.
The theatre company presents a season, its 14th, comprising all new works.
