Katori Hall Wins Playwrights of New York Fellowship

Katori Hall has been awarded the 2009-10 Playwrights of New York Fellowship, an award given annually by the Lark Play Development Center. The fellowship provides financial support to allow the recipient to spend 12 months writing full time, and comes with a $24,000 stipend and a rent-free year in a New York midtown apartment.

Katori Hall's play Hoodoo Love played a 2007 run Off Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theater; an excerpt of her new play Oreogirl: The Miscegenation of Miss Emma Brown appears in the Fall/Winter 2008-9 issue of 9L.
