2013: Jen Silverman
MARSHA NORMAN SELECTS JEN SILVERMAN’S STILL WINNER OF THE 2013 YALE DRAMA SERIES
Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman has selected playwright Jen Silverman as the winner of the 2013 Yale Drama Series for her play Still, chosen from almost 1100 entries from 30 countries. As winner of the competition, Still will be published by Yale University Press, receive a staged reading at Lincoln Center Theater’s Claire Tow Theater, and Ms. Silverman will be presented with the David Charles Horn Prize, a cash award of $10,000.
In Still, Morgan’s baby was born dead, Dolores is pregnant with a child she doesn’t want, and failed midwife Elena seeks either redemption or a career change. As all three women confront their fears, their desires, and each other, dead baby Constantinople roams the world, searching for the meaning of the word “wow,” a satisfying explanation of S&M, and above all, his mother.
