Doug Wright and Hermitage Artist Retreat Guest
Doug Wright is a Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning playwright and librettist. He is currently represented on Broadway with his play Good Night, Oscar, for which Sean Hayes won the 2023 Tony Award for Best Lead Actor. Wright is a proud Hermitage alumnus and, as of 2022, a member of the Hermitage Board of Trustees. He also served as a juror for the inaugural Hermitage Major Theater Award in 2021.
Doug Wright's play Quills premiered at Washington, D.C.'s Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in 1995 and subsequently had its debut Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop. Quills garnered the 1995 Kesselring Prize for Best New American Play from the National Arts Club and, for Wright, a 1996 Village Voice Obie Award for Outstanding Achievement in Playwriting.
In 2000, Wright wrote the screenplay for the film adaptation of Quills, which starred Geoffrey Rush. Wright's play I Am My Own Wife was produced Off-Broadway by Playwrights Horizons in 2003. It transferred to Broadway where it won the Tony Award for Best Play, as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
