Dominique Morisseau Receives Playwrights Of New York Fellowship

Dominique Morisseau

According to Shadow & Act, playwright Dominique Morisseau has been awarded the Playwrights of New York (PONYFellowship. Make no mistake, this is no small feat; in fact, my fellow Memphian, and writer of The Mountaintop, Katori Hall is a past recipient of this award.

The fellowship provides Morisseau a year of housing in a lovely apartment in NYC’s theater district, a $2,500 per month stipend for an entire calendar year, health insurance reimbursement, active membership at the LARK Play Development Center (which also includes a seat in the renowned Playwright’s Workshop), and programmed roundtable sessions, which will allow Morisseau to hear her work read by actors on a regular basis, and have in-depth discussions with other writers, actors, and directors.

Furthermore, her play Detroit ’67 will premiere at New York City’s Public Theater on Februar 26, 2013.

Kudos to this supremely talented sister!
