The Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival was held last week, and there is terrific news to share: First-year MFA playwright Livian Yeh (above left) was a co-recipient of the Paul Stephen Lim Asian-American Playwriting Award for her play Nightfall, and graduating MFA playwright Stephanie K. Brownell (above right) won the National Partners of the American Theatre Playwriting Award for her thesis play She Eats Apples.


And Cassie M. Seinuk (above right, with Gary Garrison)—who got her MFA at Lesley University and is our own BTM stage manager—took home the Gary Garrison National Ten-Minute Play Award for her play Occupy Hallmark. (I have a feeling these two will cross paths again very soon…at Boston Theater Marathon XVII!) A full list of this year’s KCACTF Michael Kanin Playwriting Award winners is here.

Congratulations everyone (and thanks for sharing your photos)!
