"Palace of the End"

Canadian scribe Judith Thompson

A little while ago I mentioned a Canadian play about Iraq that had been getting some attention Up North, Judith Thompson's Palace of the End.

It's now won the Susan Smith Blackburn prize ("given annually to recognize women from around the world who have written works of outstanding quality for the English-speaking theatre").

The NY premiere will be given not by the Culture Project as I previously speculated, but by the Epic Theatre Ensemble, the folks who brought you No Child. Look for it in June.
