The three lucky playwrights are: Sam Forman, whose The Grill Room, will be presented Jan. 17 at 7 PM; Courtney Baron, whose Morbidity & Mortality will be read Jan. 24 at 7 PM; and Huck & Holden by Rajiv Joseph, to be aired on Jan. 31 at 7 PM.
The Grill Room is about "a Jewish family [who] battles anti-Semitism while trying to gain admittance to a restricted Massachusetts country club in 1957."
Morbidity concerns "Cardiologist Dr. Anil Patel [who] takes Carolyn Goldenhersch to a Jackson Heights diner for samosas on their first date. She takes him for knishes on the Lower East Side on their second. A cross cultural romance isn't so unusual in New York City, except that she's married and he's the doctor who performed a life-altering procedure on her newborn baby."
Huck & Holden's story tells of "A college student from India [who] comes to the U.S. to study engineering, but ends up getting a first hand look at the other electives America has to offer, like Sex, Porn, Violence and The Catcher in the Rye. "
