Each year, students from graduate playwriting programs across the country submit their work to the Alliance Theatre. Those plays are judged and one writer is awarded the Kendeda Graduate Playwriting Award and earns their show a full, professional production on the Alliance’s Hertz Stage.

This year, the Kendeda winner is a play called In Love and Warcraft. WABE’s Myke Johns spoke to playwright Madhuri Shekar.

In Love and Warcraft is on the Alliance’s Hertz Stage through February 23. More information at Atlanta PlanIt.
