Neil Wechsler - Grenadine - Just Buffalo Literary Center


Chosen as the second winner of the Yale Drama Series, Neil Wechsler’s Grenadine is the fantastical story of a man’s quest for love in the company of three devoted friends. The play was selected by Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright and contest judge Edward Albee.

“I found it highly original . . . The questions the play asks and the answers it proposes are provocative; the play stretched my mind.”
—Edward Albee
