2007 Pulitizer Prize for Drama

2000 - Dinner With Friends by Donald Margulies
2001 - Proof by David Auburn
2002 - Topdog/Underdog by Suzan-Lori Parks
2003 - Anna in the Tropics by Nilo Cruz
2004 - I Am My Own Wife by Doug Wright
2005 - Doubt, a parable by John Patrick Shanley
2006 - No Award Given
2007 - Rabbit Hole by David Lindsay-Abaire

And there you have it.

So...that's a list from the 2000 on. I'd be curious if there were American plays from these past seven years you found more deserving of this honor.


Playgoer thickens the plot a bit.


The Playgoer shows exactly what blogs are good for. Stirring the pot and added analysis.

i would say caroline or change (2005?) was more deserving than anything else that year. i thought something was better than nothing last year (i could give you a few examples that would work)... anything was better than Dinner With Friends, which always struck me as a staged TV movie until it was, you know, made into a TV movie..but these things are flawed, you know?

My question is... what is the deal with MTC and the Pulitzer prize? Four shows in seven years? That's ridiculous. something must be up...
