    The Pulitzer Prize for Drama will be announced this afternoon! Since many of the high profile Broadway plays had Off-Broadway runs that made them eligible for the previous year, I highly suspect this year’s winner will go to something small.

    “If I Forget” by Steven Levenson is what I predict will win. With finalists “The Low Road” by Bruce Norris and “Is God Is” by Aleshea Harris.

    The rules stipulate that it is “preferred” that the dramatic work depict America life. If they decide to forgo that qualifier, then “A Doll’s House, Part 2” by Lucas Hnath would make a worthy winner with its relevant feminist themes.

    Other possibilities:

    “Junk” by Ayad Akhtar

    “Napoli, Brooklyn” by Meghan Kennedy

    “Mary Jane” by Amy Herzog

    “After the Blast” by Zoe Kazan

    “On the Exhale” by Martin Zimmerman

    What are your guesses?

    And a couple other that came to mind:

    “Charm” by Philip Dawkins

    “Burn all Night” Lyrics by Andy Mientus, Music by Van Hughes, Nicholas LaGrasta and Brett Moses

    …and if they stretch the eligibility requirements and throw out the “American life” stipulation, they could throw it to “The Band’s Visit”

    Pipeline is a possibility. But If I Forget, The Low Road, and Mary Jane seem the most likely to me.

    2018 Pulitzer Prize for Drama:

    Cost of Living, by Martyna Majok
    An honest, original work that invites audiences to examine diverse perceptions of privilege and human connection through two pairs of mismatched individuals: a former trucker and his recently paralyzed ex-wife, and an arrogant young man with cerebral palsy and his new caregiver.

    Finalists:

    Everybody, by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

    The Minutes, by Tracy Letts

    I assumed “Cost of Living” would be ineligible due to productions in 2016, but there must have been enough revisions to the script by the time it was produced by MTC.  Congrats to Martyna Majok.

    I think it’s only a matter of time before they give it to Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, one of this year’s finalists.
