Audiences in Seattle and Los Angeles will be the only theatregoers in the country to see the original production of this award-winning play, the centerpiece of Whoriskey’s first season as Intiman’s Artistic Director.

WHAT:
Lynn Nottage’s Ruined, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and numerous other awards, runs at Intiman this summer in a co-production with the Geffen Playhouse of Los Angeles—the only two theatres in the country to see original cast members and the design team from director Kate Whoriskey’s acclaimed world-premiere production. The play is set in a small mining town in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo, where Mama Nadi both protects and profits from the young women who seek refuge in her rain forest bar and brothel. Expertly navigating relationships and politics, this remarkable story is rich with humor, music, hope and humanity.

WHERE:
Intiman Theatre, 201 Mercer Street at Seattle Center
