Norton J. “Sky” Cooper established the Calicchio Prize at Marin Theatre Company in 2007, in honor of David Calicchio’s lifelong career as a playwright, and in support of Marin Theatre Company’s commitment to the discovery and development of new and emerging American playwrights. The playwright selected as the Calicchio Prize winner will receive a $2,500 cash award, a professional developmental workshop for the winning play, plus round-trip travel and accommodations during their stay at MTC. The workshop will culminate in an invited or public staged reading at Marin Theatre Company.
