7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Location:
Cobb Great Hall, Wharton Center, MSU
Event Details:

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and screenwriter Lynn Nottage's plays, including Ruined and Intimate Apparel, often deal with lives of women of African descent and of forgotten voices within our society.  Her most recent Broadway play, Sweat, received rave reviews and a Tony Award nomination.  The story follows the decades-long hard labor of characters whose livelihoods are threatened by the evaporation of manufacturing jobs in America. 

Ms. Nottage is an associate professor of theater at Columbia University and a lecturer in playwriting at Yale University.

The public presentation of Lynn Nottage is free to MSU faculty, staff and students. They must show their MSU ID at the Wharton Center box office to receive a maximum of two free tickets. If you would like to order a block of tickets at no cost for distribution through your department, please contact my office at 353-4640 and we will secure the tickets. Tickets are also available to the general public for $24.
