Brother McCraney: Prolific Playwright at Yale School of Drama is a Fresh Voice Already Making a Loud Noise Frank Rizzo, Hartford Courant March 25, 2007
Read on to find out more about McCraney’s life and see a piece of the inspirational article below.
“After a production at Yale’s first Carlotta Festival of new plays last spring, McCraney’s “In the Red and Brown Water” received readings at London’s Soho Rep and at the “New Work Now!” Festival at New York’s Public Theater, the latter staged by noted director Tina Landau. In January, McCraney was named the first recipient of the Paula Vogel Award, which came with a cash prize and a reading of a new play at off-Broadway’s Vineyard Theatre.” A week later, he graduates. “He’s going to be around for a long time as a significant figure in the theater,” says Richard Nelson, chairman of the playwriting department at the Yale School of Drama.”
