Volunteers Ushers for:
RUINED by Lynn Nottage (drama)
Aug. 11 - Sept. 3, 2017

Set in a rain forest bar and brothel in the war-torn Congo, the establishment’s matriarch, Mama Nadi, keeps peace between customers from both sides of the civil war, as government soldiers and rebel forces alike choose from her inventory of women, many already “ruined” by rape and torture. Inspired by interviews she conducted in Africa with Congo refugees, this play is an engrossing and uncommonly human story with humor and song. Winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

“A powerhouse drama... Lynn Nottage’s beautiful, hideous and unpretentiously important play [is] a shattering, intimate journey into faraway news reports.” - Newsday
