Harold Clark named Stanley Drama Award Finalist
Local playwright Harold Ellis Clark has been named one of two finalists for the 2015 Stanley Drama Award for his play, Uncle Bobby ’63. Clark, who wrote numerous unpublished novels and un-produced screenplays for 18 years before writing his first play in 2010, also was a finalist for the 2013 Stanley Drama Award for his play, Tour Detour.
Clark will be honored during a ceremony and reception Monday, March 23 at The Players Club, in Manhattan, NY.
Uncle Bobby ’63, a Civil Rights Era drama/mystery set during the course of a single night in New Orleans, surrounds three young civil rights workers, who, after receiving a confirmed death threat, must decide if violence or nonviolence represents the best response to hatred.
Clark also was named a finalist for Uncle Bobby ‘63 in IATI Theatre’s Cimentos 2015 (New York, NY) and Playhouse on the Square’s 2014 New Works@The Works Playwriting Competition (Memphis, TN).
