Playwright Brooke Berman has won the 1998 Francesca Primus Prize for her play Wonderland, a satire of contemporary life in New York and Hollywood. The award is given out every year to a woman playwright by DCTC and the Francesca Ronnie Primus Foundation. Primus was a critic and columnist. Berman's works have been produced and/or read at Dance Theatre Workshop, One Dream, Naked Angels, and Soho Rep. She lives in New York City.

The prize carries a cash award of $3,000, as well as a residency and a rehearsed public reading of the play at DCTC in early June. The company also retains the right to present a full production of the work. DCTC is the recipient of a special Tony for Regional Theatre this year.
