The 2024 Pulitzer Prize winners have been named, including the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, awarded annually to an outstanding American play or musical that premiered in the past year.

Primary Trust by Eboni Booth won the 2024 drama prize. The show, which premiered off Broadway with Roundabout Theatre Company in spring 2023, follows a man who loses his longtime job, forcing him to reassess his life, go outside his comfort zone, and reckon with his past and future.

The Good Place star William Jackson Harper led the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway production, and he is now a 2024 Tony Award nominee for starring in Uncle Vanya on Broadway.

Two additional plays were named 2024 Pulitzer finalists. One is Here There Are Blueberries, which is currently running off Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop through June 16. Created by Moisés Kaufman and Amanda Gronich of Tectonic Theater Project, the show tells the true story of the national upheaval that happened in 2007 when a Holocaust memorial museum received a Nazi-era photo album, which revealed disturbing truths.

Like Tectonic's most famous piece, The Laramie Project, Blueberries is a docudrama that uses verbatim transcripts from interviews with the people involved in the actual events.

The other is Public Obscenities by Shayok Misha Chowdhury, which premiered at Soho Rep in 2023 and played an encore engagement with Theatre for a New Audience in 2024, both off Broadway. The show tells the story of a Bengali American reuniting with family in India.

Shows that win the Pulitzer Prize often go on to high-profile future runs and great acclaim; the musical phenomenon Hamilton is one such example. More recently, English, a play by Sanaz Toossi, won the 2023 Pulitzer and will debut on Broadway this December.
