“Edward Clinton's 'Winners!' is hilarious entertainment about three incorrigible beauty pageant contestants (Miss Texas, Miss Ohio and Miss New Hampshire) who are all forced to share the same hotel room during a beauty pageant in Detroit, Michigan.
• “This imposed isolation only encourages the girls to engage in more and more hilarious acts of competition, revealing their less than beautiful sides and the backstage antics we usually don't get to see, all the while poking good natured fun at the beauty pageant process we all know so well.”—WINNERS!

• “Born and raised in Chicago and Evanston, Illinois, Edward Clinton began his career as an actor, making his professional debut in Chicago with Alvina Krause's Eagle's Mere Repertory Company followed by his New York debut at Wyn Handman's American Place Theatre, where he appeared in Ed Bullins' play The Pig Pen. Mr. Clinton received a full scholarship to New York University's Tisch School of the Arts where he studied acting with Lloyd Richards, Olympia Dukakis, Peter Kass and Jerzy Grotowski. After ten years of performing roles in New York and regional theatre, Mr. Clinton left acting to pursue writing full time. He is a playwrighting fellow of the Eugene O'Neill Playwrights' Center. His play Benefit of Doubt was first done at the world renowned Playwrights' Center where it was directed by Lynne Meadow, founder and Artistic Director of the Manhattan Theatre Club. Mr. Clinton's play Benefit of a Doubt went on to have its world premiere production at the Folger Theatre in Washington D.C., directed by Emmy Award winning director Barnet Kellman and starring Academy Award nominee Carol Kane. This initial production was followed by subsequent productions of the play around the country, including a New York presentation featuring Academy Award winner Chris Cooper (SEABISCUIT).”—Edward Clinton playwright - plays biography information, http://www.doollee.com, accessed February 4, 2006.
