Mr. Parker wrote his first play while an undergraduate at Emerson College, and in 1991 made the Playwrights Festival possible by creating an endowment to fund fellowships for student playwrights and support the first productions of their work.
This years winner of the Rod Parker Award is The Listener by James Holod Kennedy '14, which will be directed by Joe Antoun
As The Listener, Jillian Burns provides a safe space for clients to tell their most personal stories, secure in the knowledge that since she is Deaf, their stories cannot be heard – or shared. What her clients don’t know is that The Listener is an excellent lipreader. She relies on the secrets of others to make herself feel powerful, because she knows too well that being Deaf in a Hearing world often makes you vulnerable. But keeping secrets is lonely, and when a hopeful new friendship reveals surprising information, Jillian must ask herself whether it represents a chance for forgiveness or revenge.
