U.S. Drag  is the winner of the Blackburn Prize for playwriting and is a fascinating treatise on the lure of fame and money in our contemporary culture.

U.S. Drag is the story of Allison and Angela, two intelligent liberal arts graduates who refuse to settle for working for minimum wage. They keep their rent cheap by living with Ned, a rich and tightly-wound Wall Streeter who lets them live with him so long as they bring home hot girls for him to meet.

Angela and Allison are always on the lookout for a quick and easy way to make money, so when they learn about a $100,000 reward being offered for information on the latest Manhattan serial killer, they jump at the chance to make an “easy buck.”  But things are never so easy as they seem.

According to Variety magazine, U.S. Drag is “well worthy of the Blackburn Prize conferred on playwright Gina Gionfriddo...Wonderful."
