Ruined is a critically acclaimed play, winning major theater awards including the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It takes place in a small town in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo. In the play, Mama Nadi both protects and profits from the young women who seek refuge in her rain forest bar and brothel. Ruined is a powerful portrayal of the triumph of the human spirit.
Ruined is the first play in Intiman’s five-year International Cycle. The play will include the leading original cast members and the design team from director Kate Whoriskey’s acclaimed world-premiere production. Ruined will be co-produced with the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles, where it will run after the Seattle production. Later this season, Intiman will bring the play to South Africa’s Market Theatre, where the story will be shared with Congolese refugees in Johannesburg.
