Lindsey Ferrentino has won the National Arts Club’s 2016 Kesselring Prize for her play “Ugly Lies the Bone.” Since 1980, the prize has been awarded to a playwright on the verge of recognition, and now comes with a $25,000 award.

“Ugly Lies the Bone” had its premiere Off Broadway in a Roundabout production last year, and follows the struggles of a war veteran returning from Afghanistan to civilian life. Charles Isherwood made it a New York Times Critics’ Pick, and wrote that “Lindsey Ferrentino is a writer of dauntless conviction.”
