LeFeaver Talent is proud to announce that Audrey Dwyer has received the Cayle Chernin Award for Theatre for her play Calpurnia. Every year the Cayle Chernin award assists passionate female artists with the development of their stories.
In Calpurnia, a young Jamaican-Canadian writer named Julie Gordon is adapting Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird into a screenplay – from the perspective of Calpurnia, the housekeeper. She takes her research to extreme levels – confronting her family, her best friend and their guest on their classism, racism and privilege. She discovers who she is and how her values line up against her wealthy Canadian upbringing.
