Experience the Pulitzer Prize-winning play that will fill you with "belief in the survival of the human spirit" (NY Theatre Guide). Based on real interviews conducted by Lynn Nottage (By the Way, Meet Vera Stark), Ruined transports you into the Congo where the shrewd and savvy matriarch-turned-businesswoman, Mama Nadi, struggles to hold on to her one safe refuge – a brothel – as the world around her disintegrates into war; with women's bodies too often as the battleground. Creating poetry out of brutality, and humor and optimism out of tragedy, "Nottage tells a story an audience won't expect" (Time Out New York).
