Neil Wechsler's Grenadine has been chosen as the second winner of the Yale Drama Series. The play was selected by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and contest judge Edward Albee. Grenadine is the fantastical story of a man's quest for love in the company of three devoted friends. Albee writes, "I found it highly original. . . . The questions the play asks and the answers it proposes are provocative; the play stretched my mind."
