Bess Wohl ’02, ART ’99 wins inaugural Georgia Engel Comedy Playwriting Prize.
Bess Wohl ’02, ART ’99 was the recipient of the Dramatists Guild Foundation’s first-ever Georgia Engel Comedy Playwriting Prize. This $10,000 prize was established to honor the life of the Emmy-nominated, Obie-Award-winning actress and comedian and annually honors a playwright in honor of their work in comedy. “Georgia brought so much light to so many people, and my hope is that my own work can bring some tiny fraction of the joy and truth that Georgia embodied in everything she did, and that I can share that with audiences,” said Wohl in a statement.
