Summary
A Critical Companion to Lynn Nottage places this award-winning playwright's contribution to American theatre in scholarly context. The volume covers Lynn Nottage's plays, productions, activism, and artistic collaborations in order to display the extraordinary breadth and depth of her work. Each of her major plays is covered by an individually authored chapter, and also included is a special three-chapter section devoted to Ruined, winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize. The collection is capped by an interview with Lynn Nottage herself and two of the plays' most successful directors, Seret Scott and Kate Whoriskey. -- from back cover
