Kathleen Warnock Goes To The Lilly Awards

There are several things we love around here.  We love the terrific Kathleen Warnock whose name pops up on THM from time to time because she is an amazing playwright, a fantastic person, and someone I’m proud to know.  Kathleen has that rare talent of being able to share her spirit in words that are raw and real – not overblown or over-dramatic.  And because of that she often makes me feel I know her so much better than I do.  But that’s her gift – and that’s our present.

We also love celebrating, and women … and celebrating women.  What better way to celebrate than with The Lilly Awards – named for Lillian Hellman and started in the Spring of 2010 as a way to honor the work of women in the American Theater.

Kathleen attended the Lilly Awards and noted … “There was a delicious tension in the air as the women spoke of the need for self-recognition and celebration. The adjective “angry” was batted around, like a balloon, or a badge of honor. I’ve found that the word “angry,” depending on who is applying it, is often used as a weapon against someone who has a legitimate concern…or by someone who is frightened of what’s being said or asked.”

For the full re-cap of Kathleen’s experience continue reading at her site.  Find out all about her wonderful evening, the things she saw, the people she shared her night with … and find out who actually received an award!
