Resolution, a play co-written by Nancy Nyman and Heather McNama, is the winner of Pride Films & Plays’ (PFP) 2015 LezPlay Contest. Congratulations to both writers, and best wishes in the future.
Allison Fradkin, LezPlay’s Literary Manager, put together a reading team of forty-three theatre, film, and television professionals who judged the contest. They evaluated the scripts for structure, plot, dialogue, and character development and then chose five finalists.
My teleplay, Black-Hearted Bitch, received a reading on Friday, September 11. Six of Chicago’s most talented actors participated: Kelsey Colburn, Ellen Dunphy, Nire Nah, Rolo Rodriguez, Elise Soeder, and Bea Cordelia Sullivan-Knoff. Director Eileen Tull, also an actor, did an amazing job adapting the teleplay for a staged reading.
I had a blast in Chicago and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. It’s a definite highlight of my career, and I learned a lot. Thanks to Allison and David Zak, Executive Director of PFP for making the event possible.
