LezPlay Names Contest Winner

Nancy Nyman and Heather McNama's play Resolution was named the winner of PFP's 2015 LezPlay Contest. The contest - for works for the stage and screen written by women with lesbian characters or themes - received entries from around the world, and was judged by a reading panel from across the country, coordinated by LezPlay Literary Manager Allison Fradkin.

In the Gay Nineties, Jack and Hannah Buchannon are a happily married couple. But when their maid discovers their long-held secret and resolves to turn them in to the authorities, the couple must dissuade her or pursue their own resolution to the problem. Will this turn-of-the-century drama take a turn for the better or the worse?

Based in Los Angeles, Nancy Nyman and Heather McNama create, communicate, and collaborate. Two kick-ass chicks with somethin' to say, they have written Social Work (TV), Family Storey (Disney Channel), and The Untitled Meryl Streep Project (feature film).

Other finalists in the weekend included Black-Hearted Bitch, a teleplay by Lynn Kear, The Patron Saint of Dead Dogs, a play by Katie Grotzinger, Missed Connections, a play by Hallie Palladino, and The Terror Fantastic, a play by Nicole Jost. In addition to being involved in the rehearsal process and getting audience feedback after the readings, each of the finalists received $400.
