“We are proud to add the extraordinary plays of Lynn Nottage to our growing
e-Script collection.”
- J. Kevin Smith, Owner

Four new e-Scripts™, from Pulitzer Prize Winner Lynn Nottage, have been added to the growing library of titles available on the Scene Partner® WebStore for use in the Scene Partner App. Stemming from the worldwide e-Script agreement between Dramatists Play Service and, Ms. Nottage’s titles are available to actors and theaters for use in memorizing lines and mounting future theatrical productions of her plays.

The new e-Scripts from Ms. Nottage include:

Winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and the Lucille Lortel, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Play, among others. Ruined is a haunting, probing work about the resilience of the human spirit during times of war.

"Strong and absorbing...a cleareyed celebration of endurance."
– NY Times

"... RUINED is a remarkable theatrical accomplishment..."
– Chicago Tribune

Winner of the 2004 New York Drama Critics’ Circle and the American Theatre Critics Awards for Best Play, Variety wrote, “The play offers poignant commentary on an era when the cut and color of one's dress - and of course, skin - determined whom one could and could not marry, sleep with, even talk to in public.”

"Nottage's play has a delicacy and eloquence that seem absolutely right for the time she is depicting...New York has no richer play..."
– NY Daily News

The true story of the illicit romance between Queen Marie-Therese (wife of Louis XIV) and her African servant, Nabo, a dwarf from Dahomey, and the hilarious consequences that scandalized the French court.

"The play is a mix of politics and really good royal dish. 'French Queen Has Black Dwarf's Baby' would be a tabloid cover for the ages: Not even Fergie ever managed a scandal of such eloquent proportions."
– San Francisco Weekly

The fourth e-Script title from Ms. Nottage is FABULATION OR, THE RE-EDUCATION OF UNDINE. The new e-Script titles are available on the Scene Partner WebStore for only $9.99 each.
