    STORY           



The rain forest bar and brothel of Mama Nadi both protects and profits from the women whose bodies have become a battlefield between the government soldiers and rebels alike. Lynn Nottage's searing play takes us in the lives of a group of women surviving a civil war in the Congo. Sincere, passionate, courageous and acutely written, this is a powerhouse drama set in the real world.


RUINED is a beautiful story about the human spirit, that will bring you to tears, not out of pity for the characters, but out of admiration for their strength. 

“Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer-winning drama,...achieves a shattering intensity.”

  1. The Washington Post

Nottage deals with global rather than purely domestic issues and raises our awareness of the use of rape as a military tactic

  1. The Guadian

  2. “Searing and passionate! Not to be missed”

- The New York Times
