RECOGNITION / AWARDS

Winner! 1995 Helen Hayes Awards including Best New Play.

Winner! 1995 Helen Hayes Awards including Best New Play.
This intriguing work produced at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre and in New York was inspired by an actual incident: women were banned from the artists' dinner to plan the first Impressionist painting exhibit in 1874, even though works by women were to be shown. In the play, the dinner is at the home of Victor, a successful artist, and Clovis, an artist who no longer paints. After helping with the preparations and being excluded from the dining room, Clovis devises a "women only" dinner to be held outdoors.
"Ends with a re creation of Manet's Picnic on the Grass.' Here, however, it is a man rather than a woman who is nude. This is the kind of point McDonald makes well."" - N.Y. Daily News.

"Well written ... and its message is as unobtrusive as it is insistent.... McDonald shows her own linguistic ability in the not too common language of art history." - N.Y. Post.
