Off-Broadway's Vineyard Theatre has revealed this year's winners of their Paula Vogel Playwriting, Susan Stroman Directing, and Colman Domingo Awards: Mara Nelson-Greenberg, Josiah Davis, and Rudi Goblen, respectively.
All three will be honored at the company's annual Emerging Artists Celebration, planned for December 1 at the National Arts Club. Vogel, Stroman, and Domingo will be in attendance.
Nelson-Greenberg's play Do You Feel Anger? was previously produced by Vineyard in 2019, following a world premiere at the 2018 Humana Festival at Actors Theatre of Louisville. Her work has been developed at Playwrights Horizons, Clubbed Thumb, SPACE on Ryder Farm, Berkeley Rep, and ACT Theatre.
Davis, a director, choreographer, performer, and designer, is the associate artistic director of On the Verge Theatre Company in California. Recent credits include Mary Gets Hers at Playwrights Realm, Clyde's at Alabama Shakes and Arkansas Rep, AMANI at National Black Theatre and Rattlestick, and The Lightning Thief for TheatreWorks USA.
Goblen is a playwright, educator, and performer. He's toured internationally with dance group Flipside Kings, and is a three-time playwriting award winner from the Kennedy Center.
