Best Original Play

Trish Crist’s What

There were a handful of worthy original plays mounted locally the past year, but for economical craft, intellectual acuity and writerly playfulness, Crist’s collection of short scenes was hard to beat. Recalling the spirit of Seinfeld, What managed to engagingly evoke modern life, with all its sincere emotion and pregnant moments that remind us how precious—and also how funny and scary—the human experience can be. The production was also her inaugural effort as new head of Rhubarb Theatre. MARTIN BRADY
