TCG’s third plenary thought globally and celebrated locally, with Stephen Karam, Nikkole Salter, Deaf West Theatre, and more.
Lin-Manuel Miranda won the top honor; ‘Gloria’ by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins and ‘The Humans’ by Stephen Karam were named finalists.
Tonight’s awards ceremony for playwrights and their advocates includes a new prize named for the late American master.
Stephen Karam’s ‘The Humans,’ like Annie Baker’s ‘John,’ uses realism to sharpen our attention to something bigger.
The prize includes a $25,000 commission.
The playwright gives a sneak preview of his new work, commissioned by NYC’s Roundabout and premiering this fall at Chicago’s American Theater Company.
