"How the Light Gets In" wins Steinberg Award!

I'm delighted to share that "How the Light Gets In," which premiered last year at Boston Court Pasadena in California, has won the Steinberg Award from the American Theater Critics Association! I'm so proud and so grateful!

The Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award and Citations, presented by Harold & Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust and the American Theatre Critics Association (ATCA), recognize playwrights for exceptional plays that premiered professionally outside New York City. The 2020 prizes, which celebrate works produced in 2019, were presented online May 13. The 2020 finalists, selected by members of ATCA, were culled from a submission of 32 scripts by playwrights across the U.S. This year’s winner was How the Light Gets In by E.M. Lewis, which premiered at Boston Court Pasadena in Pasadena, California. Lewis was awarded a $25,000 cash prize.
