Eileen Dugan and Kirsten Tripp Kelley appeared in Jewish Repertory Theatre’s production of “Body Awareness,” part of their award-winning 2013-14 season.

Getzville's Jewish Repertory Theatre and the Paul Robeson Theatre at Buffalo's African American Cultural Center each received a 2014 50/50 Applause Award from the International Centre for Women Playwrights, the organization announced this week.

The award went to 67 theaters throughout the United States around the world whose recent seasons featured plays by female writers at least 50 percent of the time. Jewish Repertory Theatre co-founder and artistic director Saul Elkin (at :36) and Paul Robeson Theatre Artistic Director Paulette Harris (at 8:31) each appear in a video announcing the award recipients:
