|ATHE 2020 Jane Chambers Playwriting Award|
The Jane Chambers Playwriting Award recognizes new feminist plays and performance texts created by women and genderqueer writers for the stage that present a feminist perspective and contain significant opportunities for female performers. We welcome plays that experiment with form and/or that feature non-binary characters. This annual award is given in memory of lesbian playwright Jane Chambers who, through her plays A Late Snow, Last Summer at Bluefish Cove, My Blue Heaven, Kudzu, and The Quintessential Image, became a major feminist voice in American theatre.
This award is administered by the Women and Theatre Program (WTP). The Chair of the Chambers Award Committee notifies the VP for Awards and Executive Director of the winner.
The nomination period for the 2020 award is closed.
NB: All student submissions should be sent separately and directly to the Student Coordinator per the WTP website and student guidelines. All guidelines must be followed–including sending the play to the current coordinator’s address–to be considered.
