Celebrating the First Berwin Lee Playwrights Award

This week, Barneys CEO Mark Lee held a reception at his Chelsea apartment for the Berwin Lee Playwrights Award, an annual grant of $25,000 to two playwrights—one British and one American—whose work hasn't yet been produced on the West End or on Broadway.

Guests including actress Donna Murphy, the playwright Terrence McNally, Lincoln Center Theater's André Bishop, Simon Doonan and Sandy Brant came to toast this year's winners Bathsheba Doran (who was in attendance) and Lucy Kirkwood (who wasn't), as well as Mr. Lee and his partners in this endeavor, the film producer Dorothy Berwin and the theater producer Tom Kirdahay.
