Dear TDF and 2010 Wasserstein Prize Committee,

Please reconsider your decision regarding the 2010 Wasserstein Prize and select a recipient, or recipients, to receive the award. Your claim that "none of the plays were truly outstanding in their current incarnation" sends a discouraging message to early career theatre artists at a time when these artists need more support than ever. The prize is not to support a production of the play, but the promise of the writer.

To read more and to add your name to the petition go to:

and another update with the latest news: Officials had announced the Wendy Wasserstein prize would not be awarded because no scripts by young women were deemed worthy.
