Tarell Alvin McCraney


The New York Times has awarded playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney their first Outstanding Playwright Award, to honor his play "The Brothers Size," at a ceremony held at The New York Times Building. The NYT award was decided by a selection committee including playwrights Edward Albee, Richard Greenberg, James Lapine, 2009 Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage ("Ruined") and New York Times Arts and Culture editors. McCraney, 27, is a 2007 graduate of the Yale School of Drama playwriting program and is an international playwright in residence at the Royal Shakespeare Company. He was raised in New Orleans and currently resides in Miami. Ben Brantley of The New York Times called McCraney an "astonishing young dramatist," when reviewing his production of "Wig Out" last year at the Vineyard Theater in New York.
