Description: A new comedy by the Pulitzer Prizewinning author ofRuined."Nottage is one of our finest playwrights, a smart, empathetic and daring storyteller who tells a story an audience won't expect."Time Out New York"Lynn Nottage's work explores depths of humanness, the overlapping complexities of race, gender, culture and historyand the startling simplicity of desirewith a clear tenderness, with humor, with compassion."Pulitzer Prizewinning playwright Paula VogelIn her first new play since the critically acclaimedRuined, Lynn Nottage examines the legacy of African-Americans in Hollywood in a dramatic stylistic departure from her previous work. Fluidly incorporating film and video elements into her writing for the first time, Nottage's comedy tells the story of Vera Stark, an African-American maid and budding actress who has a tangled relationship with her boss, a white Hollywood star desperately grasping to hold onto her career.

Premiered in New York in 2011 and will receive productions at L.A.'s Geffen Playhouse in fall 2012 and Chicago's Goodman Theatre and The Lyric Stage Company of Boston in spring 2013.Lynn Nottage's plays include the Pulitzer PrizewinningRuined;Intimate ApparelFabulation, or the Re-Education of Undine;Crumbs from the Table of Joy;Las Meninas;Mud, River, Stone;Por'knockers; andPOOF!
