The Stanley Drama Award was established in 1957 by Staten Island philanthropist Alma Guyon Timolat Stanley and endowed through the Stanley-Timolat Foundation to encourage and support aspiring playwrights.
The national Stanley Award competition is administered by the Wagner College Theatre program under the direction of arts administration professor Todd Price, Esq. The award carries with it a monetary prize along with the distinction of joining the illustrious list of past Stanley Award winners, such as Terrence McNally‘s “This Side of the Door” (aka “Things That Go Bump in the Night”), Lonne Elder III’s “Ceremonies in Dark Old Men” and Jonathan Larson‘s “Rent.”
