"How does love continue to flourish in the face of such ugliness and brutality?" That's the question that drove playwright Lynn Nottage to write "Ruined" which just won the Pulitzer Prize. It's set at a bar/brothel in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the middle of a civil war. She tells Kurt how the play formed out of real stories she gathered from the women there. With performances by Quincy Tyler Bernstine.
