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”
