Manhattan Theatre Club celebrated its world-premiere production of Penelope Skinner's The Ruins of Civilization on May 18. Directed by Leah C. Gardiner, the work is presented as part of the MTC's the Studio at Stage II.

In The Ruins of Civilization, it's sometime in the future, and Dolores and Silver are living their married life within the constraints and norms of a new world order. In an act of what seems like pure generosity, Dolores secretly opens their home to a stranger in need.

The four-member company is made up of Tim Daly, Rachael Holmes, Roxanna Hope, and Orlagh Cassidy.

The Ruins of Civilization is directed by Leah C. Gardiner and directed by Penelope Skinner.
