Lark flies to Pamatmat

Writer wins year-long fellowship

A. Rey Pamatmat has picked up Lark Play Development Center’s Playwrights of New York Fellowship, a yearlong gig that comes with a rent-free Manhattan apartment and a $27,000 living stipend.

Pamatmat’s “Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them” was one of the breakouts at this year’s Humana Festival for New American Plays. Last year the scribe was awarded a Princess Grace Fellow in playwriting.

Roster of recipients for the Lark’s 5-year-old fellowship program include Katori Hall, whose “The Mountaintop” arrives on Broadway this fall in a production starring Samuel L. Jackson and Samuel D. Hunter. Pamatmat begins his fellowship in October, succeeding Tommy Smith.

“Edith Can Shoot Things” is in the midst of a string of productions at theaters including Mu Performing Arts in Minneapolis, New Theater in Coral Gables, Fla., Actor’s Express in Atlanta and B Street Theater in Sacramento.

Finalists for the Lark program included Peter Gil-Sheridan, Michael Lew, Mona Mansour (whose “Urge for Going” did a recent stint at the Public) and Jackie Sibblies Drury.
