The Congo, Coming Soon to Broadway

So there's a play in Chicago about women caught up in the violence in eastern Congo:
Set in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the year 2000, Ruined follows a young woman's nightmarish path to Mama Nadi, a savvy businesswoman who—in the midst of a complex civil war—both protects and profits from the women whose bodies have become battlegrounds. At once heartbreaking and captivating, Ruined pays homage to the courageous and resilient women who must piece themselves together after the ruin.
The play is to begin its run in Manhattan starting January 21.
