Writer wins year-long fellowship
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.
