The play traces the journey of a teenage girl who runs away with an ex-convict only to be drawn into a world of lost innocence and murder. Set in the rural deep South, The Glory of Living is the story of Lisa, a fifteen-year-old girl who escapes her life with her prostitute mother by running off with Clint, a former car thief recently released from prison. They fall in love and marry, but as they drift from one motel to the next, Lisa finds herself caught up in a life of crime and brutality. The Glory of Living won The American Theatre Critics Association Osborn Award, the London Evening Standard Award for "Best New Play", a Joseph Jefferson Citation for "Best New Work", an After Dark Award for "Outstanding New Work", and was a Pulitzer Prize Nominee in 2001.
