LYNN NOTTAGE’S RUINED RECEIVES 2009 PULITZER PRIZE FOR DRAMA

LYNN NOTTAGE’S

RUINED

RECEIVES 2009 PULITZER PRIZE FOR DRAMA

 

Lynn Nottage‘s RUINED is the recipient for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play, a co-production between Manhattan Theatre Club and Goodman Theatre, is currently playing an extended engagement at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street).

 

This marks the fourth time in eight years, an MTC production has received the Pulitzer: Lynn Nottage‘s RUINED (2009), David Lindsay-Abaire‘s Rabbit Hole (2007), John Patrick Shanley‘s Doubt (2005), and David Auburn‘s Proof (2001). This is MTC’s sixth Pulitzer Prize for Drama overall, an accomplishment unparalleled by a New York theatrical institution.

 

RUINED is currently playing an extended engagement at New York City Center through Sunday, May 10.

 

From Lynn Nottage, the Obie Award-winning author of such plays as Fabulation and Intimate Apparel and director Kate Whoriskey (The Piano Teacher, Fabulation), comes this haunting, probing work about the resilience of the human spirit during times of war. Set in a small mining town in Democratic Republic of Congo, this powerful play follows Mama Nadi, a shrewd businesswoman in a land torn apart by civil war. But is she protecting or profiting by the women she shelters? How far will she go to survive? Can a price be placed on a human life?
