RUINED by Lynn Nottage
January 7 - February 6, 2011
Savvy business woman Mama Nadi knows how to survive in the midst of the Congo civil war: don't take sides. She sells beers and girls to any man who'll leave his gun at the door. The good-time atmosphere of the canteen and her sharp wits can't always protect her and her girls from the atrocities afflicted on them, but their courage, humor, and hope live on in this gripping drama.
"Sincere, passionate, and courageous, RUINED is a remarkable theatrical accomplishment." — Chicago Tribune
