Natalie Marlena Goodnow's Mud Offerings has just been awarded the the JANE CHAMBERS AWARD for feminist plays & performance texts created by women writers, presenting significant opportunities for female performers.
From the prize notification:
"We were struck with the feminist Chicana themes, the theatrical poetry, and the complex storytelling that you wove in this solo play. Kudos! And Thank You for sharing this work. Typically the Contest weights toward plays with more roles for female performers in them, so take it as testament to our vivid, shared excitement about your play that it won. We were compelled by this exquisite short work, so embodied and complex in its sense of character, history, sexuality, place, and religion. We are eager to share it with others (theaters and feminists)."
