ArtsEmerson’s Mala Debuts at #7 on Audible Bestseller List, Receives Coverage in Top Tier Publications

Melinda Lopez

Playwright Melinda Lopez premiered Mala with ArtsEmerson in fall 2016, and the play debuted at #7 on Audible’s bestseller list this week, with pickup from dozens of outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Miami Herald, and more.

Mala won the 2016 Elliot Norton Award for Best New Play, and also ran at the Guthrie Theatre, Minneapolis (Oct. 2017) and Huntington Theatre Company, Boston (January 2018). Melinda’s website describes the play as “an utterly unsentimental journey towards the end of life, Mala is an irreverent exploration of how we live, cope and survive in the moment.”

The play is available on Audible here.
