Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner has called Constance Congdon "one of the best playwrights this language has produced." Highlights of her 30-year career include her original play Tales of the Lost Formicans (produced more than 200 times worldwide, most recently in Cairo and Helsinki) and an adaptation of Maxim Gorky's A Mother with Olympia Dukakis in the lead role. Congdon has won grants and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the W. Alton Jones Foundation and the Guggenheim Foundation. She has taught playwriting at Amherst since 1993.
