“Jerusalem Redux” was selected as a winner of the Jewish Ensemble Theatre Festival of New Plays for 2018 (jettheatre.org). The award included a public, rehearsed reading, along with a cash honorarium. On the path to this award, the play had excerpts read and critiqued by fellow members of Working Title Playwrights of Atlanta. It was also given a detailed critique by a professional dramaturge. Most recently, the play received an online Zoom reading by The Merely Players of Atlanta. Each reading was followed by a critique session. The updates made as a result of these sessions have helped polish what has been described as an exciting and thought provoking play.
