World View Lecture Series: Lynn Nottage (April 2018)

Description:

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and screenwriter Lynn Nottage ’s plays, including Ruined and Intimate Apparel, have been produced widely, and often deal with lives of women of African descent and those forgotten voices within our society. Her most recent play, Sweat, opened on Broadway in March 2017 to rave reviews. The story follows the decades-long hard labor of its characters, whose modest livelihoods are threatened by the evaporation of manufacturing jobs in America. She is an associate professor of theater at Columbia University and a lecturer in playwriting at Yale University.
