Congratulations to current Lab Member Clare Barron, who has just been named the 2014 P73 Playwriting Fellow!
The P73 Playwriting Fellowship provides year-long comprehensive support to one early-career playwright who has received neither wide public recognition nor substantial production opportunities in New York City. As a 2014 Fellow, Clare will receive $10,000 dollar stipend and an additional $10,000 to support the development of new plays.
Clare Barron’s plays include Baby Screams Miracle (Clubbed Thumb Summerworks); Solar Plexus (Ensemble Studio Theatre’s Marathon of One-Act Plays); and a boy put this girl in a cage with a dog and the dog killed the girl (developed at The Atlantic Center for the Arts, Colt Coeur, and The Bushwick Starr). She is a member of Youngblood at EST and a recipient of an EST/Sloan grant to develop Old Four Legs – a play about a prehistoric fish. As an actor, Clare recently appeared in the world premiere of Heidi Schreck’s The Consultant at Long Wharf Theatre directed by Kip Fagan. She has also appeared in Target Margin’s Uncle Vanya and The Tempest in NYC, and Masrah Ensemble’s Arabic-English production of Mud in Beirut, Lebanon.
You go girl!
