Photo Coverage: Jordan Harrison and Zayd Dohrn Receive Horton Foote Awards

Just last night, Jordan Harrison (Marjorie Prime) and Zayd Dohrn (The Profane) were presented with the 2016 Horton Foote Prize for Outstanding New American Play and Promising New American Play, respectively. BroadwayWorld was there for the big night and you can check out photos below!

To celebrate their exceptional contributions to American theater, each playwright was presented with $20,000 and a limited edition of Keith Carter's iconic photograph of Horton Foote. Marjorie Prime had its world premiere with Center Theatre Group's Mark Taper Forum in September 2014, receiving its New York premiere with Playwrights Horizons in November 2015. A 2015 Pulitzer Prize finalist, it continues great success with 2016-17 season productions on slate across the country. The world premiere of The Profane at Playwrights Horizons will begin previews March 17, 2017 with opening night set for April 9, 2017 at Playwrights Horizons' Peter Jay Sharp Theater.

This year's Prize marks the centenary of the birth of the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, whose works include The Trip to Bountiful, The Orphan's Home Cycle, and The Young Man from Atlanta. The Horton Foote Prizes are funded by the Greg and Mari Marchbanks Family Foundation of Austin, Texas.
