Clarence Coo Wins Yale Drama Series Award

I’m so excited for my friend Clarence! We first met when we were roommates at the Great Plains Theater Conference, and we caught up again when he was in town for the Bay Area Playwrights Festival, with this play. I completely agree with what John Guare (John Freaking Guare!) said about Clarence’s play:

“My readers and I found Beautiful Province by Clarence Coo to be the most successfully realized play. I admired it for its bold theatricality, its daring, its ambitious theme, its consistent tone, its heightened language. The contest searches for a brave new voice in the English-speaking world. We found this year’s winner in Clarence Coo’s Beautiful Province.”
