 Honey Brown Eyes received The 2009 Charles MacArthur Award
for Best New Play or Musical at the 25th Annual Helen Hayes Awards.


Bosnia, 1992. In two kitchens, two soldiers recover a little of what they’ve lost during the war. A Serbian soldier confronts a woman he might have known and is faced with a terrible choice, while a member of the Bosnian resistance takes refuge in what he thinks is an abandoned apartment. Unlikely partnerships emerge in this play of horror, humanity and stunning relevance.
