"The Helen Hayes Awards launched in 1984 and, for the past decade, have been split into two designations: “Helen” for smaller productions with mostly non-equity actors and “Hayes” for larger shows with mostly equity casts. Solas Nua’s world-premiere drama “The Honey Trap” led all Helen productions with 10 nominations, including the Charles MacArthur Award for outstanding new play or musical." --The Washington Post
