This weekend, playwright Cori Thomas heads to the Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville to accept the prestigious M. Elizabeth Osborn Award during the annual gathering of the American Theatre Critics Association there for her 2010 City Theatre hit, When January Feels Like Summer. The award recognizes the work of a playwright whose plays have not received a Broadway or Off-Broadway production or other major national awards. It carries a cash prize and receives recognition in the Best Plays theatre yearbook.
Last season, When January Feels Like Summer received its world premiere at City Theatre, and Artistic Director, Tracy Brigden, is thrilled about the award. She tells the Post-Gazette‘s Chris Rawson, who nominated Cori and the play for the Osborn, ”All of us at City Theatre are so proud to have produced the world premiere of such a glorious play.” Her words could not be more true.
