Did you know…

…in addition to the Pulitzer Prize, Humana Festival plays have won many other prestigious awards, including the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize, the Pen Center USA West Award, the Kesselring Prize, the Obie Award and the American Theatre Critics/Steinberg New Play Award.

The three Pulitzer Prize winners, by the way, are D. L. Colburn’s The Gin Game, Beth Henley’s Crimes of the Heart and Donald Margulies’ Dinner with Friends. Coincidentally (or maybe not), all three of those plays have also been adapted to the screen.

Maybe you’ll see the next big award winner in this year’s festival.
