I was shocked at the level of the emotional performances, I could have cried through most of the show and that was due to the amazing acting by the cast. Hard show to watch, very heavy, but reccomend it. The only negative was the smoking, I was second row and it was okay, but the ladies next to me left. Be prepared for that and to have very deep discussions after!!
Lynn Nottage’s Ruined is a powerful portrayal of the triumph of the human spirit in a war-torn country. Guided by music and the rhythm of life in the Congo, Ruined transports audiences 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.
