Lynne Alvarez, winner of numerous awards including the Kesselring Award in 1983. She arrived in New York planning to be a hot shot poet. She is the author of two books of poetry and her plays have been widely published and anthologized.From Booklist:
The plays of Wendy Wasserstein, Beth Henley, Suzi-Lori Parks, Tina Howe, Marsha Norman, and more female playwrights receive regular, national coverage, but as the annual Women Playwrights well illustrates, there are more talented women in the American theater than those objects of New York Times attention. The relative obscurity of the playwrights included is, of course, a strength of the series' practice of casting the net wide to include not only playwrights with growing reputations but others who are still rarely produced in New York or trying to get a toehold there. A real find is the pair of quirky, funny, intelligent one acts in the 2001 edition, Strangers and Romance, by a young Chicago-based playwright simply named Lhota, who, like the other dramatists represented, contributes a short introductory essay to her work.
