THE STORY: 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 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. What's more surprising is the exquisite balance the playwright brings - of brutality and poetry, hope and even humor."
- Variety.

 

"Strong and absorbing...a raw and genuine agony pulses within...a cleareyed celebration of endurance."
- NY Times.

 

"Sincere, passionate, courageous and acutely argued, RUINED is a remarkable theatrical accomplishment..."
- Chicago Tribune.

 

"In the hands of this talented playwright, what might have been a predictable political polemic instead emerges as a richly stirring and complex drama that even includes generous doses of humor."
- NY Post.
