About the Judith Barlow Prize:

The Judith Barlow Prize is awarded annually to a student playwright for an exceptional one-act play inspired by the play of an historic female-identifying playwright. The prize was created by History Matters/Back to the Future, an organization that promotes the study and production of women’s plays of the past in colleges, universities, and theatres throughout the country and encourages responses to those plays from contemporary playwrights.

Judith Barlow is Professor Emeritus of English and Women’s Studies at the University of Albany, SUNY. She received her B.A. from Cornell University and her PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. She is the editor of Plays By American Women 1900-1930, Plays By American Women 1930-1960, and Women Writers of the Provincetown Playhouse and is the author of Final Acts: The Creation of Three Late O’Neill Plays, as well as numerous essays on American Drama.
