In war-torn Congo, Mama Nadi keeps the peace between customers on both sides of the civil war by serving everything from cold beers to warm beds. This shrewd matriarch both protects and profits from the women whose bodies have become battlegrounds ďruinedĒ by the brutality of government soldiers and rebel forces alike. Inspired by interviews conducted in Africa, this searing play is an engrossing and uncommonly human story told with humor and song, revealing the immeasurable loss and hopelessness of war, yet finding affirmation in life and hope.

BWW Review: RUINED by Amy Tintera
by Bonnie Lynn Wagner - May 8, 2018

Ruined centers around Princess Emelina, a girl bent on revenge. Two neighboring kingdoms have taken everything from her: They've killed her parents and kidnapped her sister, the heir to the throne of Ruina. Even though Em is the eldest sister, she won't inherit because she is not Ruined and has no magical abilities. How can someone so weak rule over a kingdom that was once so strong? Her only goal in life is now to save her sister. Em kills the crown princess of a neighboring kingdom, one who decapitated her father in order to marry a prince. She disguises herself as Princess Mary and goes to marry Prince Casimir herself. She vows to destroy both kingdoms from the inside, avenge Ruina, and save her sister. She never expected that Prince Casimir might actually be rational, unlike his father. That he might be kind. That she might fall for him.... Could love be the weapon that kills the ultimate revenge?
