2007 Essential Theatre Playwriting Award Winner:
Jean Sterrett won the 2007 Playwriting Award with her play FIX ME SO I CAN STAND, a powerful fact-inspired story about injustice to African Americans in the South. One of the characters, a young lawyer, was based on a real man from Clayton County, now a judge. He came to see the play on his own — and then returned with friends and family in tow!
An Atlanta resident at the time the play was written, Jean originally hails from Australia. After Essential’s production of this play, she was named Creative Loafing’s Critics Pick for Best Local Playwright. “Sterrett showed such a vivid sense of place that Atlanta’s larger playhouses should give her work a look.” -Creative Loafing
