We are thrilled to announce that Wellesley Repertory Theatre’s professional production of Shirley Lauro’s A Piece of My Heart has been recognized as 2018 winners of the Moss Hart Memorial Award for Theatrical Excellence by the New England Theatre Conference: the oldest, largest regional theatre association in these parts! This will be the 3rd time our company in its 20 years of work has received this honor, and we could not be more proud.
The annual Moss Hart Memorial Award has a two-fold purpose: to honor the memory of Moss Hart, dramatist and director, for his wit and sensitivity, for his unconquerable enthusiasm for life and for his work in the theatre; and to recognize and encourage outstanding theatrical productions throughout New England of playscripts that present affirmative views of human courage and dignity, that have strong literary and artistic merit, and which in their productions, exemplify fresh, imaginative, creative treatment within the intent of the playwright. The New England Theatre Conference, in making the annual Moss Hart Memorial Award, seeks to encourage artistic growth and the highest standards of excellence in theatre.
The awards ceremony will occur on October 14th. Want to get gussied up and attend? Tickets can be purchased here! Bravissimi to all involved, and a big thank you to all who come to see our productions and support our work. We look forward to bringing you more dynamic stories from our hearts and muscles in our upcoming season!
