Powerful drama: Made in America.

The acclaimed Broadway hit and 2017 Pulitzer Prize winner is a collision of race, class and friendship at a pivotal moment in America. A group of friends in a Rust Belt town has spent their lives sharing secrets and laughs on the factory floor. But when layoffs begin to chip away at their trust, they’re pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight. “Writing at the peak of her powers,” Lynn Nottage (Ruined) has crafted “a superb, vital contribution to contemporary drama that could not be more timely” (The New York Times).
