The pair will split a $45,000 prize and receive the most extensive national roll-out in American theater, with staged readings at some of the most esteemed theaters in the country for their plays. In Barron’s case, it’s for her work Dance Nation, a show about ambition, competition, and growing up—and how we find our souls in the heat of it all; DeLappe has penned The Wolves, a play that follows a girls indoor soccer league.
