Jerre Dye Honored with Bryan Family Award for Dramatic Literature

And the hits just keep coming for Voices of the South. Jerre Dye, the innovative theatre company's artistic director, will be honored with The Bryan Family Award for Dramatic Literature in April presented by the Fellowship of Southern Writers.
Dye was asked to submit a copy of his play Cicada for review last year.

"I guess they liked it and I couldn't be happier," he says.

The award will be presented by Pulitzer Prize-wining playwright Beth Henley at The 16th Biennial AEC Conference on Southern Literature on April 14-16 in Chattanooga. www.southernlitconference.org

Cicada is scheduled for revival at TheatreWorks in March after a successful run in 2009.
