- Barry Kornhauser
Barry Kornhauser spearheads the Family Arts Collaborative at Millersville University in Lancaster County, Pa. Prior to this, he served as playwright-in-residence and sundry other positions at the Fulton Theatre for more than 30 years. His honors include the Charlotte B. Chorpenning Cup Award, Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Play, Ivey Playwriting Award, two AATE Distinguished Play Awards and the Bonderman Playwriting Prize. He has received grants and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, TYA USA/ASSITEJ, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour. Kornhauser's work has taken him everywhere from a one-room schoolhouse to the White House and to such Tony Award-winning stages as the Children's Theatre Company, La Jolla Playhouse, the Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, D.C. and the Alliance Theatre. His plays have also been produced at the Kennedy Center, Childsplay and the Honolulu Theatre for Youth, among other theatres nationwide and overseas, as well as at festivals from New York City to California, including the Kennedy Center's New Visions/New Voices One Theater World. Kornhauser is deeply grateful for these opportunities, to his inspiring colleagues and to his wonderful family: wife, Carol; children, Ariel, Sam and Max; daughter-in-law, Sena; and his mother, Florence. And that's no humbug!
