Proud to share that SHEEPDOG has recently been named one of six finalists for this year’s Harold and Mimi Steinberg / American Theatre Critics Association 2020 New Play Award, recognizing playwrights for the best scripts that premiered professionally outside New York City during 2019.
Press release from The American Theatre Critics Association (ATCA) here.
With annual prizes totaling $40,000, Steinberg/ATCA is one of the largest national new play award programs.
ATCA began honoring new plays produced at regional theaters outside New York City in 1977. Plays receiving a production in New York City during the award cycle are not eligible for the Steinberg/ATCA award, recognizing the many other awards programs that award New York productions. The Steinberg/ATCA award has been funded by the Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust since 2000.
The 2020 finalists were culled from 32 scripts submitted from productions that premiered in 13 states.
