Best Drama Runner-up: Lorey Hayes for Man on a Skewer
Best Comedy (tied for first place):
Michael Verderber for GPS:Gender's Problematic Situation

Thanks again to our wonderful actors, directors, crew members, and to our hardworking Board of Directors without whom we would not have been able to bring you our 28th Playwrights' Express.
