Announcing the Arts & Letters Drama Prize Winner

Announcing the Winner of the 2019 Arts & Letters Drama Prize!

Tha winner receives $500 and the play will be produced in the spring of 2020.

John Doble, “A Serious Person”

Judge: Iona Holder

This year’s submissions ran the gamut in terms of subject matter and structure. The winning play provides a fast-paced whirlwind of action that is sure to leave the audience spinning. “A Serious Person” is a quick and clever play that reflects the deep desire many of us  have to “connect” with another within the bindings of a blind date. Two people come together to find a way around the quirks and eccentricities we all recognize once a relationship moves beyond small talk.

Finalist: D.L. Siegel, “Like the Last”
