Jenny King, “Reconciling”
Judge Iona Sun has selected Jenny King as the 2018 Winner of the Arts & Letters Prize for Drama.
“Reconciling is an expertly crafted tapestry that weaves three stories together in a manner that exposes the humanity of each one, challenging traditional structure. It will provide an excellent evening of theatre. From the first pages, it is evident that this playwright seeks to broaden the potential of storytelling; she succeeds in rendering an exploration of language that is sure to delight audiences whilst challenging actors.”
King will receive $500 and her one-act play will be produced on the Georgia College campus in the spring of 2019.
Finalists: Angela Davis, “Agathe”; Robert Daseler, “Apple Valley”; James Wade, “In Case of Fire”; Marshall Botvinick, “The Hero and the Scholar”; and Neil McGowan, “The Stain”
