In conjunction with the Huntington Theatre Company's production of Lynn Nottage's emRuinedem, local scholars, aid workers, journalists, and other experts co-facilitate Huntington staff-led post-show conversations on the issues raised in Nottage's important work. In emRuinedem, savvy business woman Mama Nadi knows how to survive in the midst of the Congo civil war: don't take sides. She sells beers and girls at her bar and brothel to any man who'll leave his gun at the door, shrewdly keeping the peace among the warring sides. Miners, merchants, and government and rebel soldiers drink, dance, and choose from her women, many "ruined" by rape and torture before they were pressed into prostitution. The good-time atmosphere of the canteen and Mama Nadi's sharp wits can't always protect her and her girls, but their courage, humor, and hope live on as they seek a path to the future in this gripping drama.moreless
