  • Overview

    2009 Pulitzer Prize-winner for Drama

    A world-premiere co-production
    with the Goodman Theatre.
    By Lynn Nottage
    Directed by Kate Whoriskey

    From the Obie Award-winning author of such plays as Fabulation and Intimate Apparel 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?
