Der Spiegel declared Roland Schimmelpfennig the Playwright of the Year for 2010 after winning the award.

The Africa Trilogy playwright and Peggy Pickit Sees The Face of God author Roland Schimmelpfennig has won a major international playwriting award.

Roland’s play, The Golden Dragon, beat out works by Austrian Nobel Prize-winner Elfriede Jelinek and five other finalists to take home the Mülheim Drama Prize for German language drama along with fifteen-thousand Euros.

The jury president stated in the prize announcement: “It has within it everything that one could possibly desire from a play.”

Congratulations to Roland from the entire The Africa Trilogy Team!
