David Tolchinsky honored for his work

David Tolchinsky’s full-length play, “Clear,” was one of six selected to be published in 2015/issue 3 of Proscenium Theatre Journal. The journal also ran a long interview with him. Previously, he was commissioned by Fork the Man Productions to write the film "The Coming of Age" and is now one of the co-producers on the project; the film is complete and is being submitted to film festivals. The trailer for the project was edited by Zach Lorkiewicz (RTF Class of ‘12). Tolchinsky was also nominated for Best Play and was named Best Director at the Strawberry One-Act Play Festival, Hudson Guild Theatre, New York City, in February, for his play “Where’s the Rest of Me?”.

Tolchinsky was honored for this directing award at the NU Faculty Recognition dinner on September 28. The play was selected for inclusion in a volume of the best plays from the festival, to be published later this winter. His feature, Girl (screenwriter and associate producer), “from a million years ago” said Tolchinsky, starring Dominique Swain, Selma Blair, Portia de Rossi and Sean Patrick Flanery, was released on iTunes. He was featured along with our MFA in Doc Media program director Debra Tolchinsky at #8 on Newcity Magazine’s Film 50 List. A great honor for both of them, the program and the department.
