Lynn Nottage is a two-time Pulitzer Prize winning playwright and screenwriter. Her many plays have been produced widely in the United States and throughout the world. Nottage received the Pulitzer Prize Award for Drama for Sweat in 2017 and Ruined in 2009, two plays that gave voice to marginalized lives. The common thread that unifies her plays is the “morally ambiguous heroes or heroines, people who are fractured within their own bodies, who have to make very difficult choices in order to survive”. She lives in Brooklyn.
