Gordon Dahlquist's TOMORROW COME TODAY has received the 2015 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Drama. This prestigious award is given annually to a play that "displays striking and original talent" makes a "lasting impact on theater." This year, over 180 plays were nominated and only three shortlisted to receive the prize.
TOMORROW COME TODAY premiered in 2014 at Undermain Theater in Dallas, Texas. Set in a not-too-distant future, technological advances have enabled the wealthy to cheat death, the members of the elite have the ability to switch from one body to a newer, healthier, sexier body at will, living for hundreds of years. But the planet’s climate clock is running out. Dahlquist’s "deep and nuanced" futuristic thriller takes us on a shape-shifting ride into a world all-too familiar to our own (Theater Jones).
