My Play Sans Merci Won the 2008-2009 Reva Shiner Award!!

I just got off the phone with Richard Perez, Artistic Director of the Bloomington Playwrights Project. My play SANS MERCI has won the 2008-2009 Reva Shiner Award.

I am ecstatic. I will get to go to Bloomington in October for the production. Jason Grote and Adam Kraar (whose reading I went to last week and recently met) are past winners.

I can't wait to see the production.

Congratulations, Johnna - nice going!

Jason Grote said...

Congrats, Johnna. Bloomington is great. Tell Richard hi for me, and check out Tracks, Caveat Emptor, and The Encore Cafe. Fun fact! Past winners also include Sheila Callaghan and Itamar Moses. The BPP knows how to pick em!

Way to go, Johnna!

I'm gonna tell everyone in Orange County! I have always admired you as a risk-taker who knows how to keep her art in the risk. Or as I told you one time, you break the rules intelligently.

Congratulations, my friend. You're awesome, and so is the play.
