Sharyn Rothstein's All the Days Receives 2015 Edgerton Foundation Award

The world-premiere play will run next season at the McCarter Theatre Center.

Sharyn Rothstein's All the Days has received the 2015 Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.

The McCarter Theatre Center has been named the 2015 recipient of the Edgerton Foundation New Play Award in support of Sharyn Rothstein's All the Days, a world-premiere comedy centered on a complicated relationship between a mother and her grown daughter. All the Days is the sixth McCarter world premiere to receive an Edgerton Award in the past eight seasons.

Among the Edgerton Award recipients that have been produced on Broadway is Christopher Durang's Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, which opened McCarter's 2012-13 season and went on to win the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is currently the most frequently produced play among regional theaters in America.

Other McCarter world premieres that have received the Edgerton Award include Tarell Alvin McCraney's The Brother/Sister Plays and Will Power's Fetch Clay, Make Man, both of which went on to receive off-Broadway productions.

With direction by artistic director Emily Mann, All the Days is scheduled to run next season at the McCarter Theatre from April 29-May 29, 2016. Rothstein's past work includes The Invested, Queen Bee, March, Camp Monster, Neglect, A Good Farmer, For Abigail Who Drowns Men, and By the Water, which was produced off-Broadway with Manhattan Theatre Club and Ars Nova in 2014.
