The 2013 winner of the DC Horn Foundation/Yale Drama Series Prize

In this darkly comic exploration of loss, intimacy, and motherhood, three women are joined by a baby who never lived. Morgan, in her middle years, is the grieving mother of a stillborn child. Elena, the failed midwife, burdened by guilt, is considering a career change. Dolores, eighteen, is pregnant with a baby she does not want. Meanwhile, Constantinople, the child who wasnt meant to be, wanders lost in search of his mother, trying to make sense of the world while making an unlikely appearance in each womans personal drama.

Poignant, lyrical, ingeniously absurd, and outrageously funny, Jen Silvermans Still is a brave and remarkable exploration of grief and family. It is the seventh winner of the DC Horn Foundation/Yale Drama Series Prize, selected this year by Marsha Norman, the Pulitzer Prizewinning author of Getting Out; night, Mother; and other acclaimed theatrical works.
