News   Bradshaw, Hunter, Kron, O'Connor and Kopit Named Lark Playwrighting Fellows The Lark Play Development Center has announced the names of the five playwrights selected for the 2008-2009 Playwrights' Workshop Fellows 2008.

Playwrights Thomas Bradshaw (Southern Promises), Samuel D. Hunter (Lark's 2008 PONY Fellow), Lisa Kron (Well), Deirdre O'Connor (Hero) and Lark playwright-in-residence Arthur Kopit (Wings, Nine) comprise the workshop that unites established, emerging and mid-career writers. The selected playwrights will participate in bi-weekly sessions over the period of eight months to develop work in private and public readings. Tony-winning playwright David Henry Hwang serves as the 2008-2009 Lark Playwright Advisor.

The Lark Play Development Center, a 2008 recipient of a $500,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, brings together actors, directors, playwrights and the community to allow writers to learn about their own work by seeing and hearing it, and by receiving feedback from a dedicated and supportive community. The Lark is led by producing director John Clinton Eisner, managing director Michael Robertson, and artistic program director Megan Monaghan.
