October 05, 1992|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Marion McClinton has won the $10,000 Kesselring Prize for his play "Police Boys," which was produced at Center Stage last spring. The Minnesota playwright was nominated by the theater, which staged his inner city drama as part of its 1992 re:Discovery series.

Awarded annually by the National Arts Club, the Kesselring Prize is funded by a bequest from playwright Joseph Kesselring, author of "Arsenic and Old Lace." This year's judges were playwright John Guare, recently named New Yorker magazine critic, John Lahr and Lincoln Center dramaturg Anne Cattaneo.
