Katori Hall
The Lark Play Development Center will honor playwright Katori Hall, who is making her Broadway playwriting debut with The Mountaintop, with a special benefit event, to be held on Tuesday, October 11.

The evening, which will also honor Sandi Goff Farkas, will include a pre-show party and award presentation at the Lark's new midtown Manhattan home, followed by a performance of Hall's The Mountaintop, starring Angela Bassett and Samuel L. Jackson.

Hall was the third recipient of the Lark's PONY Fellowship. During Hall's time as the PONY Fellow, she developed a number of works including Children of Killers, Our Lady of Kibeho, Pussy Valley and The Mountaintop, which was presented as a Lark BareBones® before receiving a full production on London's West End for which it won the 2010 Olivier Award for Best New Play.

Benefit tickets are $1,000 each and will help to fund Lark's extensive program portfolio fostering bold voices in the American theater. To purchase, or for more information, click here.
