By Lynn Nottage
Directed by MFA Directing candidate Troy M. Apostol

Winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Ruined is a snapshot of the chaos of the civil war in Africa's Democratic Republic of the Congo. Women are both victims and life-forces in this tense, bloody - and ultimately, hopeful - drama.
