“Pulitzer-winner Lynn Nottage and ‘This Is Reading’: Celebrating Reading in multimedia, film, and dance”
The Inquirer interviews Project& Global Advisory Board Member and Creative Collaborator Lynn Nottage about her special bond with Reading, PA. Nottage’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Sweat” was inspired by her interviews with the citizens of Reading. The transmedia installation This is Reading, in the historic Franklin Street Station was a collaborative effort to give back to Reading and to continue to tell their story.

This Is Reading was created by an award-winning team of artists, including Lynn Nottage; filmmaker Tony Gerber; director Kate Whoriskey; projection designer Jeff Sugg; set designer Christine Jones; and producers Jane M. Saks, Blake Ashman-Kipervaser and Allison Bressi.
