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

“Six degrees of separation” refers to the idea that, if a person is one link away from each person they know, and two links away from each person who is known by each of the people they know, then everyone is at most six degrees away from any other person on Earth. The term was popularized by John Guare’s intriguing, insightful exploration of celebrity and the games we play to elevate our significance.
