Description

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.

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.
