"Cornell gave me two things: an incredible education, including the tools and love of research to write "Indecent," and an enthusiasm for smaller towns — hence my move to Wellfleet, population 3,000."
Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist Paula Vogel, M.A. '76, Ph.D. '16, entered Cornell's doctoral program in theater arts in 1974. In her first year as a graduate student, she won the Forbes Heerman and George McCalmon playwriting competition for "The Swan Song of Sir Henry." Vogel took home the prize again her second year for "Woman for All Reasons," a feminist take on Robert Bolt's "A Man For All Seasons." Currently professor-at-large at Brown University and playwright-in-residence at Yale Repertory Theatre, Vogel was the Eugene O'Neill Professor of Playwriting at the Yale School of Drama 2008-12. For more than two decades, she served as director of playwriting at Brown, where she helped establish the Brown/Trinity Rep Consortium and mentored scores of artists.
