2018 Playwright of the Year – Amina Henry

Amina is a strong believer in education. She is a graduate from Yale University, NYU’s Performance Studies MA program, and the MFA Playwriting program at Brooklyn College. Amina is widely known for her work as an activist, specifically on issues affecting women. She regularly teaches Mighty Quills at Hunts Point Alliance for Children (HPAC). When it comes to reliability as an artist, friend, mentor, playwright, sister, and humanitarian, very few people can walk in the same footsteps as Amina Henry. It is with great honor that I am happy to announce Amina Henry as the recipient of the Warlock Asylum International News 2018 Playwright of the Year Award. Congratulations and we offer out deepest gratitude for all the contributions that you have made to the world of theatre and human society.
