From Lynn Nottage, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of such plays as “Fabulation” and “Intimate Apparel,” comes this haunting, probing work about the resilience of the human spirit during times of war. Set in a small mining town in the Democratic Republic of Congo, this powerful play follows Mama Nadi, a shrewd businesswoman in a land torn apart by civil war. But, is she protecting or profiting by the women she shelters? How far will she go to survive? Can a price be placed on a human life? Winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize. “RUINED takes us inside an unthinkable reality and into the heads of victims and perpetrators to create a full-immersion drama of shocking complexity and moral ambiguity. This show is about women forced into sexual slavery in the Congo. Adult theme and language.
