I really enjoyed this production. The story line and characters were vibrant and would suggest it to people. This play did a good job of bring awareness and human touch to the plight of many Congolese women.

Wonderful play with very good acting. I personally enjoyed that there was not a lot of singing! There was a part in the play when one of the girls was telling her story of how she was taken from her yard. The audience was so still and hanging onto...continued

I love live theatre so Ruined was a wonderful show. I would have rated it a 5, however the plot moved a little slow until the end of the first half. Definitely worth while seeing particularly at a discounted rate.

Really enjoyed "Ruined"! It was well written with comedy, horror, and suspense. Well worth the money!

Ruined is an excellent play! The script and acting were phenomenal. Humanizing such a horrific experience is no easy feat. However, Ruined captures the heart with humor, raw emotion, and masterful portrayals. It is not to be missed!
