Magellanica & the Kilroys!

"Magellanica" -- my recently completed Antarctic epic play -- is an honorable mention for this year's Kilroy List of great plays by women playwrights.  I'm so pleased!

"THE LIST 2015 includes the results of the second annual industry survey of excellent new plays by female and trans playwrights.  It is a tool for producers committed to ending the systemic underrepresentation of female and trans playwrights in the American theater."

How The List Was Made 

  • They surveyed 321 influential new play leaders — Artistic Directors, Literary Managers, Professors, Producers, Directors, and Dramaturgs — who had read or seen at least 40 new plays in the past year
  • Each respondent recommended 3 to 5 plays each, identifying a total of 755 plays as among the best work they had encountered in the past year
  • THE LIST comprises the top 7% of those plays — the 53 most recommended plays from this survey, which each received between 4 and 20 nominations
  • The Honorable Mentions comprises the top 32% of nominated plays — these 186 plays each received 2 or 3 nominations
  • To ensure unbiased results, responses were anonymous. All identifying information of recommenders was tracked separately from their recommendations in the survey software
  • The members of The Kilroys did not nominate plays for The List

To be Eligible for The List, a Play Must be:

  • unproduced or have had only a single professional production
  • by an author who identifies as female or trans
  • among the most excellent seen or read by the industry professional within the previous twelve months and
  • not included on last year’s list of top 46 plays
