PUBLIC OBSCENITIES by Shayok Misha Chowdhury: Pulitzer Prize Finalist

Congratulations to Misha Chowdhury on being named a 2024 Pulitzer Prize Finalist in Drama for Public Obscenities, written and directed by Mr. Chowdhury.

The Pulitzer committee described the play as “a densely written, deeply-felt drama that examines identity, home, queerness, and language through the lens of a Bengali American reuniting with his family in India.”

Soho Rep and the NAATCO National Partnership Project’s production of Public Obscenities premiered at Soho Rep in February 2023. It subsequently played in a co-production at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in Washington, D.C., in November and December, and at Theatre for a New Audience’s Polonsky Shakespeare Center from January 17 – February 25, 2024.
