Profile’s Concert Staging of Ruined by Lynn Nottage
What You'll Get
Profile Theatre is thrilled to present a concert staging of Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play alongside Brecht’s modernist classic that inspired it! The same cast of 11 powerhouse actors of color, accompanied by acclaimed percussionist Rob Smith, will perform both plays. Ruined is a 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? We will present Ruined alongside a concert staging of Mother Courage, which was the play’s inspiration, for one week only. The indomitable Mother Courage follows one luckless army after another across a war-torn world in her canteen wagon. She’ll do anything to hold onto her money-making wagon, even if it means the loss of her children. See this defining play of the 20th century staged like you never have before! Concert stagings are fully-staged, book-in-hand presentations with elegant, spare lighting and sound design and minimal props and costume pieces designed to put the focus on the actors and the text.The tickets identified in this promotion are made available through Goldstar.
