Ruined – Theater Review
“Ruined”, Lynn Nottage’s lavishly praised drama set in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo, is the front-runner for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in Drama, industry people are speculating
“Ruined” is a play that is getting a lot of attention at the Manhattan Theater Club. It’s a relatively well-known story of how badly war treats women, especially in the Congo. So, the atrocities are nothing new, and not any easier to hear now, than they were before. But the acting in this is superb. Three stars.
