Adam Pasen and Joe Sanders earn recognition at American College Theater Festival.

Adam's play "Spats," which was a regional winner at ACTF last January, was a co-winner along with Joe Sanders' play "Fly-Over State" at the Actors' Theatre of Grand Rapids "Living on the Edge VIII: Secrets and Lies" festival of new 10-minute works. It was also in the top 40 for the Samuel French Off-Off Broadway Festival in New York under a pseudonym, and performed at the Lion Theatre on 42nd Street. Here is the website:

Adam's dissertation play Tea with Edie and Fitz, which was produced in York Arena in July, has been awarded an Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation grant of $1000. The Foundation awards grants to projects that present LGBT figures in an actual historical context, and awarded the grant based on Tea's exploration of the sexual and gender dynamics between Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald as well as Henry James' struggle with his own latent desires.
