Page 73 Prods., the legit company that focuses on early-career playwrights, has tapped Caroline V. McGraw as its 10th annual P73 Playwriting Fellow.
Page 73 has a solid track record in spotting rising talent. The 2005 fellow, Quiara Alegria Hudes, recently won the Pulitzer for “Water by the Spoondul” — the second installment in a trilogy of plays, the first of which was produced by P73. Other fellows to have gone on to notable success include Kirsten Greenidge, whose “Milk Like Sugar” won plaudits in a 2011 Off Broadway run; Jason Grote, now a writer on “Mad Men”; and Heidi Schreck, who won strong notices for “There Are No More Big Secrets” in 2010.
McGraw, a Yale Drama grad, aims to work on several projects during her fellowship, including one about a playwright and her hometown, Cleveland. Writer will fill a fellowship slot occupied in 2012 by Max Posner.
Next production from Page 73 is an Off Broadway staging this spring of Kara Manning’s “Sleeping Rough,” to be directed by Sam Buntrock, helmer of the Rialto revival of “Sunday in the Park With George.”
