His plays include: Intimacy and Burning (The New Group), Mary and Carlyle (Goodman), Southern Promises, Fulfillment, Job, and Dawn (Flea Theater), The Bereaved (Crowded Fire, Partial Comfort, and the State Theater of Bielefeld in Germany), Thomas and Sally (Marin Theater Company) and Lecture on the Blues (Whitney Museum). He is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Prince Prize, a Foundation for Contemporary Arts award, a Doris Duke Implementation Grant, and a PEN/Laura Pels International Foundation for Theatre Award.
