Yesterday I met up with fellow critics Karen D’Souza of the San Jose Mercury News, Robert Hurwitt of the San Francisco Chronicle, Rob Avila of the San Francisco Bay Guardian and Chad Jones of Theater Dogs to pick this year’s Glickman Award winner for the best play to premiere in the Bay Area last year.
We all agreed that this year it has to go to The Hundred Flowers Project by Christopher Chen, premiered last October by Crowded Fire Theater and Playwrights Foundation. The full announcement is here if you wanna check it out.
Honorable mention goes to Josh Costello’s Little Brother, which we all agreed was another strong contender.
This is the 30th annual Glickman Award. Past winners include Tony Kushner, Octavio Solis, Sarah Ruhl, Philip Kan Gotanda, Anne Galjour, Denis Johnson, Dan Hoyle, and many, many more.
