"Doctor Cerberus" Awarded New Play Grant

SCR’s upcoming production of "Doctor Cerberus," by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (pictured above), has been awarded this year’s new-play grant from The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation’s Theatre Visions Fund.

The national Theatre Visions Program grant goes to only one production each year, so it’s a particular honor that SCR has snagged it for the second time (the Foundation also awarded our production of "On The Jump"in 1999).

Half of the $50,000 grant goes to support the production itself, $10,000 goes directly to the playwright and the rest will fund two new commissions. (SCR gets to choose which ones.)

We hear that this year’s process was especially competitive and that it was Roberto’s exemplary playwriting skills that put him over the top.
