A play championed by New Theatre, Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them, received a citation this weekend in the American Theatre Critics Association ‘s new plays competition. A. Rey Pamatmat’s Edith bowed at New Theatre in Coral Gables in October as the second stop in the Rolling World Premiere Program of the National New Play Network. The theater critics association also named Yussef El Guindi’s Pilgrims Musa and Sheri in the New World, a play about immigration and assimilation, winner of the $25,000 Harold and Mimi Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award for 2012. The Steinberg/ATCA recognizes the best American scripts that premiered professionally the previous year outside New York City.
The idealized nuclear family is nowhere to be seen here, but playwright A. Rey Pamatmat has put in its place as strong and supportive a family unit as it is bizarre in this quirky production.
