For a group of visual artists, one career-making competition will place them in a heated all-or-nothing battle royale in MJ Halberstadt's The Launch Prize. Leading up to their daunting graduate thesis exhibition, one student suggests that they won't be judged on their artistic talent or merit. Instead, the young artists discover that their individual racial and gender identity may play a critical factor in the prize committee's selection of a winner. Fast-paced and full of intrigue, this new play makes its premiere at Boston Center for the Arts' Calderwood Pavilion.
This show’s running time is one hour and 30 minutes, with no intermission.
