Mad Cow Theatre just announced its 2010-2011 season on Friday, but here’s an addition already: Karen Zacarias’s play Legacy of Light, which premiered this past season at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., and will be staged at Mad Cow July 29-Aug. 28, 2011.
In 2006 Zacarias won the Francesca Primus Prize, given by the American Theatre Critics Association to honor a female theater artist, for her play Mariela in the Desert. Here’s a link to a story about her from the Washington Post in 2009.
A play about William Shakespeare, Bill Cain’s Equivocation, has won the 2009 Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award, an annual prize that recognizes the best play produced in the U.S. outside New York City the previous year. Cain will get a prize of $25,000.
Two other playwrights, Donald Margulies and Karen Zacarias, won $7,500 citations in the annual contest — Margulies for Time Stands Still and Zacarias for Legacy of Light.
