SAVAGES AND SADISTS

Playwrights Amy Freed and Doug Wright will soon be richer by $10,000 each, having won the 1995 Kesselring Prize administered by the National Arts Club. Freed was cited for her play “The Psychic Life of Savages,” which came out of Washington’s Woolly Mammoth Theater. Wright’s play, “Quills,” about the Marquis de Sade, was nominated by the New York Theater Workshop.

The judges for the award, which was inaugurated in 1980 through a bequest from Joseph Kesselring, the author of “Arsenic and Old Lace,” were Anne Cattaneo, dramaturg at Lincoln Center Theater; playwright and bon vivant John Guare; and New Yorker theater critic John Lahr. The awards will be presented Nov. 5 at the National Arts Club.
