Lynn Nottage

World View Lecture

Cobb Great Hall

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.

The World View Lecture Series is made possible in part by the MSU Office of the President. This presentation is presented in partnership with Wharton Center and the Leading Voices Series of MSU’s College of Arts & Letters, and is generously supported by the College of Natural Science; Department of Community Sustainability; and University Outreach and Engagement.
