Selected from over 450 entries, delilah. premiered March 29, 2011 as a 10-minute play at a public reading by Rising Sun Performance Company in New York City. After audience and company voting, it went on to be produced with five other plays July 7-23 at the off-off-broadway theatre, The Red Room. The play was also produced at The London One Act Festival (winning top People's Choice Award), the InspiraTO Festival in Toronto (People's Choice), BoxFest Detroit, and two others.

In January 2012, a Theatre Creator's Reserve Grant was awarded to Len Cuthbert by the Ontario Arts Council, recommended by The Grand Theatre, London, to write delilah. to a full length script. As part of the process, a 60-minute version was first written and directed by Len Cuthbert and performed at a Fundraising Event on May 30 and then 6 times at The London Fringe Festival in June to raving media reviews. delilah. was nominated for three Beat Magazine DISH Awards (Best Original Script, Best Director - Drama, Best Drama) and a Brickenden Award (Original Script) for the June 2012 production.

From the experience and responses of these productions, the full length play was completed and premiered in London, April 3-6, 2013, again to great audience response and media review.
