Mat Sweeney receives 2020 Sherwood Award

Mat Diafos Sweeney has received the 2020 Dorothy and Richard E. Sherwood Award, a $10,000 prize awarded by Center Theatre Group to an innovative and adventurous Los Angeles theatre artist at a catalytic moment in their career.

Since 1996, the Sherwood Award has been given annually in honor of longtime Center Theatre Group supporters Dorothy and Richard E. Sherwood. Richard was President and then Chairman of the Center Theatre Group Board, and Dorothy was deeply involved in the award’s selection and curation process before her passing in 2018. This year their son, Ben Sherwood, was part of the internal panel that selected Sweeney.
