How does one survive on the edge of conflict? That question is at the heart of Lynn Nottages' Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Ruined. Mama Nadi runs a bar and brothel in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a country torn apart by a ravenous war against the land, the communities and the women who inhabit them. But is Mama Nadi protecting or profiting from the women she shelters? Inspired by interviews with Congolese women, Ruined is a thought-provoking commentary on exploitation in various forms and a testament to the strength of the human spirit in the face of adversity.

The audience is invited to take part in a pre-show discussion from 7:15 - 7:45 prior to the Friday evening performance.
