Ordinarily, a brothel wouldn't be considered a sanctuary, especially for women. But, as a civil war shreds the Congo into bloody tatters, Mama Nadi's brothel looks downright cozy to those who seek refuge there. Such is the mixed-up world of Ruined, Lynn Nottage's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama. Partly inspired by the equally opportunistic Mother Courage, Mama Nadi keeps the peace between customers on both sides of the war, serving everything from cold beers to a warm touch. Shrewd and fierce, this memorable matriarch protects women who have been "ruined" by the brutality of the conflict ... even as she profits from them. Eclipse Theatre Company kick-starts their 2014 Lynn Nottage-themed season with this remarkable work at the Athenaeum Theatre Studio Three. Learn More

Great production! It drew me into the world of the play immediately and held me there, through all the good & bad! Not the 'happiest' show you'll ever see, but it encapsulates the spirit of the Blues and why we all need them to get through!
