With all the activity surrounding Boston Theater Marathon XXI, it’s been busy around here! And there’s even more to celebrate: While we were wrapping up the BTM (May 19), current MFA playwright Eliana Pipes was at the Lilly Awards ceremony in NYC, where she received the 2019 Leah Ryan Prize for Emerging Women Writers for her play DREAM HOU$E!

Congratulations, friends!
