About the play:
As a civil war rages in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mama Nadi runs a lively brothel where soldiers can lay down their weapons. But the good-time atmosphere cannot hide the battles waged on the women who work there. Despite these atrocities, their courage, humor and hope survive in this multiple award-winning, hit Off-Broadway play.
Tickets for "Ruined" are $31 - $66 and are available at the Playhouse Box Office: (858) 550-1010 or online.
"Ruined" is sponsored by Deutsche Bank and Bozeman Group, LLC.
