Play by Bauer 'TAGged' as outstanding new script

Monica Bauer's My Occasion of Sin won two Theatre Arts Guild Awards, announced at the annual awards banquet on August 7th. The TAG awards are presented each year honoring theater produced in Omaha, Nebraska.

From the TAG Web site: "With over 35 theatre and production companies in the metro area and with more than 250 productions mounted each season, the TAG Awards allow lovers of the live theatre art form to salute the artists who give so much of themselves in entertaining us throughout the season. And for the artists themselves, recognition by peers and theatre lovers alike is a treasured honor."

My Occasion of Sin was honored for Outstanding New Script; and actress Bailey Newman won the Youth Actress Award for her performance as Mary Margaret Irzandowsky. The play was produced in April by the Shelterbelt Theatre, directed by Roxanne Wach.

Monica wrote a guest post for Playwrights' Perspective this spring, about the meandering road to this production.

Congratulations, Monica! Outstanding!
