‘Hunter Gatherers’: Best local 2006 premiere 

Bay Area theater critics have named "Hunter Gatherers" by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb the best local play of 2006.

The San Francisco-based Nachtrieb is winner of the Will Glickman Award, an annual honor given to the writer of the best play to have its world premiere in the Bay Area. Theatre Bay Area, a local arts service group, announced the winner last week.

The comedy, directed by Tracy Ward and produced by Killing My Lobster, premiered at Thick House in San Francisco in June 2006. The show marked the first full-length play presented by the sketch comedy troupe Killing My Lobster.

Nachtrieb and Killing My Lobster will receive awards at a private ceremony in March. In addition, Nachtrieb will receive $4,000.

In other arts news, the San Francisco International Film Society announced Wednesday that Peter Morgan, screenwriter of 2006’s acclaimed "The Queen" and "The Last King of Scotland," will receive the Kanbar Award at the Film Society Awards Night on May 3.

The 50th Annual San Francisco International Film Festival runs April 26 through May 10. The awards presentation is at the Westin St. Francis Hotel.

The Kanbar Award is named for Maurice Kanbar, a San Francisco film commissioner and philanthropist known for supporting independent film.
