The American Theater Critics Association has awarded the 2015 Harold and Mimi Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Award to playwright Rebecca Gilman for her work, “Luna Gale.” The top honor from the organization was presented this weekend at a ceremony in Louisville, Ky.
The powerhouse drama, about a social worker with an overwhelming caseload (and plenty of baggage of her own) who must decide whether to leave a child with drug-addict parents or place her with a grandmother who is a religious fundamentalist, had its world premiere at the Goodman Theatre in 2014, under the direction of Robert Falls.
The $25,000 award is in recognition of work that premiered outside of New York City last year.
