Quiara Alegria Hudes Wins Pulitzer Prize

Congratulations to Quiara Alegria Hudes, who has won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. She served as our guest for the inaugural podcast for Hamilton Dramaturgy’s TheatreNow!

The Pulitzer Prize in Drama is given for a distinguished play by an American author, preferably original in its source and dealing with American life. The award is for WATER BY THE SPOONFUL, an imaginative play about the search for meaning by a returning Iraq war veteran working in a sandwich shop in his hometown of Philadelphia.

Congratulations, Quiara.
