Playwrights score Lark fellowships

Bradshaw, Brunstetter among those to score funds, support

Thomas Bradshaw and Bekah Brunstetter are among the playwrights to score the hefty New Voices/New York fellowship in its inaugural year, from the Lark Play Development Center.

Joshua Allen and Andrea Thome also receive fellowships, which include a $20,000 stipend for living expenses over an 18-month residency as well as $5,000 in enhancement funds to go toward securing a New York City staging of a play penned during the residency.

Bradshaw (“Mary,” “The Bereaved”) will work on two new plays, including one about Clarence Thomas, while Brunstetter (“Be a Good Little Widow,” “Oohrah!”) will start a play about the Oregon Trail and depression in the 19th century. Thome will develop a show that takes its inspiration from an Arab-Spanish philosopher and transgender performers, and Allen is set to work on two new plays.

Each scribe also is paired with an industry “producer advocate,” with Bradshaw matched with Manhattan Theater Club’s Jerry Patch, Brunstetter teamed with Superwolf’s Sherri Kronfeld, Thome linked to Intar’s Louis Moreno and Allen matched to Primary Stages’ Andrew Leynse.

Funds for the New Voices/New York program come from Gotham’s Theater Subdistrict Council and Time Warner.
