The Flora Roberts Award, presented to a dramatist in recognition of distinguished work in the theatre and to encourage the continuation of that work, is given to Tony Award nominee Arthur Kopit (Nine, High Society).
The Lanford Wilson Award goes to Mike Lew (Bike America, Tiger Style!). The award was established by the estate of Wilson and is presented by the Dramatists Guild Council to a dramatist based primarily on his or her work as an early-career playwright.
Tony Award winner Christopher Durang (Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike) receives the Hull-Warriner Award, which is given in recognition of a playwright's work addressing controversial subjects involving the fields of political, religious or social mores of the times.
Additionally, the Dramatists Legal Defense Fund presents the first DLDF Defender Award to Larissa Mark, a high school senior from Trumbull, CT. Mark successfully organized her community in opposition to her school's sudden cancellation of its production of Rent, which resulted in the production's reinstatement. This new award honors Mark's work in support of free expression in the dramatic arts.
