On Sunday, the Drama Desk Awards bestowed the cast of the off-Broadway production of The Wolves with an award for Outstanding Ensemble. Today, Obie and Drama Desk winner Lizzy Jutila shares what it felt like to work as a member of that award-winning cast.
"Earning this award has made me feel so respected for my work as an actor and so respected to be a young woman. Yes I think I am lucky to have had the experience I did with my extremely talented cast and crew but I think we definitely earned the honor. Everyone involved put in their heart, passion and pain into this story. I have been wanting something like this since I was a little girl and now that it's here I have to keep going and reach farther. I am inspired to do more collaborative and ensemble work. The process was the most rewarding."
