Byrne Wins Playwriting Festival

Washington University alum and former media/music editor and writer for the Riverfront Times Richard Byrne won the innagural Prague Post playwriting contest.

Byrne's one-act play Burn Your Bookes peeks at a world of intrigue and alchemy in the court of the Holy Roman Emporer, Rudolph II. A ruler perhaps infamously known (or unknown) for likely sparking the 30 Years War after the Prodestant Bohemian demanded that his brother Matthias (who snatched the throne) provide the liberties Rudolph promised them.

Byrne currently lives in Washington, D.C. where he is editor of The Chronicle of Higher Education and the American editor of the Belgrade publisher, Alexandria House.
