The Pulitzer Prize for Drama — awarded to “a distinguished play by an American author, preferably original in its source and dealing with American life.” In 1918, the first Pulitzer Prize for Drama was awarded to Jesse Lynch Williams for Why Marry? I know what you’re thinking… I’ve never heard of that play. Since then, 87 other prizes have been awarded, with only 18 given to female writers thus far. In this scene study class, dig into a history of the American theater that is often mentioned but not always explored.
