WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Goodman presents the world premiere of Lynn Nottage's Ruined, starring Adriane Lenox and directed by Kate Whoriskey. The play is about a savvy businesswoman in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, who protects and profits from the women whose bodies have become a battleground. Following the Goodman run, the production will then transfer to Manhattan Theatre Club in New York. In addition, the Goodman presents a free CONTEXT series event, "Tools of War: Violence against Women in African Conflicts" at 5pm on Sunday, December 7 in the Owen Theatre. Tickets are free, but reservations are required. Silence is being broken in places across Africa where women and aid officials are beginning to speak out against sexual violence as a tool of war. In the DRC, tens of thousands of women have been raped in the past few years and United Nations officials have called it the worst violence against women in the world. In a culture where rape more often brings shame than assistance to the victim, how are women finding safe ways to speak about their experiences? Panelists Include Lynette Jackson, Professor of Gender Studies and African Studies at The University of Illinois at Chicago; Ngozi Udoye, CEO and President of African Women in America; and Prexy Nesbitt, Speaker and Educator on Africa, foreign policy and racism.
