Best Local Playwright

Karen Wurl

Staff Pick

A terrific slam poet and winner of the 2005 Essential Theatre Playwriting Award for new local writers, KAREN WURL debuted deliciously witty dark comedy Miss Macbeth at Power Plays, the 2005 Essential Theatre Festival. The pitch-perfect backstage satire mingled so cleverly with homages to “the Scottish Play” that the only tragedy of Miss Macbeth was that it needed to be longer — and how often can you say that about any play, let alone a new one?
