Lynn Nottage's Ruined is a powerful portrayal of the triumph of human spirit in a war-torn country. Guided by music and the rhythm of life in the Congo, Ruined transports us to Mama Nadi's bar, a small town refuge where intimacy comes at a price. But by creating this uneasy oasis for women who have no place else to go, is Mama a protector or profiteer? Expertly navigating relationships and politics, this remarkable story, rich with humor, hope and humanity, was lauded in numerous critic top 10 lists and was extended eight times during its New York run.

Ruined is a co-production with the Intiman Theatre: Kate Whoriskey, Artistic Director; Brian Colburn, Managing Director. Proudly sponsored by the Edgerton Foundation.
