Benjamin Stone is the 2008 recipient of the Betty Lambert Memorial prize. He writes:

I am very honored and encouraged to have been awarded the prize. Thanks very much for your interest in my play and future plans. I will be studying at SFU through the summer to finish my BFA in Theatre Performance. In the fall I will either enter the Professional Development Program that will enable me to teach English and Theatre or I will continue work on SFU's 2009 spring mainstage production of “Harmonia”.

“Recognize No Other” is a play inspired by the novel “Faces In The Water” by Janet Frame. It is set inside a psychiatric hospital and involves a large cast of characters both threatening and empathetic. The play uses innovative images, abstracted physicality and sound scores to explore the fabrication of authority, the abuse of power and the enduring human spirit.
