Time: Friday, October 30, 2009 5:30 p.m.
Location: The Drama Book Shop, 250 West 40th Street, New York, NY 10018
Title of Event: Signing with Lynn Nottage, author of this year's Pulitzer-winning Ruined

Playwright Lynn Nottage, author of this year's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Ruined will be in the shop to discuss and sign copies of her plays.

Ruined recently ended its run at Manhattan Theatre Club (where it began performances in January), in a world-premiere co-production with Chicago's Goodman Theatre. Kate Whoriskey, who directed the production and developed the play with Nottage in Africa, writes in the book's introduction: "All of us who spend our lives in theater know that it has an incredible capacity for illuminating the unseen, reshaping history, bringing out empathy and providing social commentary... Once in a great while a project seems to get enough of the elements right that it becomes a memorable piece of theater. Ruined is one of those pieces."

Lynn Nottage’s other plays include Intimate Apparel (New York Drama Critics’ Award for Best Play), which was the most widely produced play of 2005-06 theater season in America; Fabulation, or the Re-Education of Undine (OBIE Award); Crumbs from the Table of Joy; Las Meninas; Mud, River, Stone; Por’knockers and POOF! She is recipient of numerous awards, including a 2007 MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship.

If you would like a signed copy of RUINED but are unable to attend the event, you may order a copy by calling the Drama Book Shop at 212 944-0595 (option 3)
