Colleen Murphy wins the 2016 GG for Drama

Congratulations to Colleen Murphy who won a Governor General's Literary Award for her play Pig Girl!

Here's what the jury had to say:
"Colleen Murphy weaves a masterfully structured examination of humanity within our most inhumane moments. Pig Girl forces us to relentlessly bear witness to a single night of horror that echoes the silenced ongoing violence against women. Difficult and harrowing, it asks us to acknowledge our collective responsibility. Arresting. Undeniable. Unforgettable."
