Ruined: A Drama on War and Gender-Based Violence by PAF

The Department of Performing Arts and Film (PAF)College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS)Makerere University in collaboration with the American Embassy in Uganda is presenting a drama show entitled Ruined by Lynn Nottage

Showing:
Friday November 24, 2017 at 4:00pm, Main Hall, Makerere University
Sunday November 26, 2017 at 2:00pm, Ndere Centre, Kampala Uganda

Directed by PAF's own Dr. Charles Mulekwa, Ruined generally addresses two broad themes: war and gender-based violence. The Playwright presents a haunting and probing work about the resilience of the human spirit during times of war and its effects especially regarding women. Set in recent times, in a small mining town in Democratic Republic of Congo, this powerful play follows Mama Nadi, a shrewd businesswoman in a land torn apart by civil war. But is she protecting or profiting by the women she shelters? How far will she go to survive? Can a price be placed on a human life? These are some of the questions the playwright triggers the audience to ponder on through the play.

Presented during the International Gender-Based Violence week, November 24-28, 2017, Ruined enhances the national and international activism against gender-based violence and war in Uganda. As such, this show strengthens Makerere University's practical participation in important public debates on issues of human good and sparks Ugandans' consciousness regarding gender-based violence and triggers action against gender-based violence and conflict management.
