Ravages of Civil War Grip Coral Gables Theatre

GableStage Artistic Director Joe Adler always manages to snag the rights to the hottest scripts. This time, it’s Lynn Nottage’s 2009 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, “Ruined,” opening this weekend at the company’s Biltmore hotel theater in Coral Gables.

Nottage traveled to war-torn Uganda to research the moving drama about the plight and hopeful resilience of women in a dark Congo brothel. Adler has tapped talented award-winning actors Marckenson Charles, Renata Eastlick and Lela Elam and the performance will be accompanied by live music featuring lyrics by Nottage. Performances run Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., through October 7. Tickets are $45-50. GableStage is located in the eastern wing of the Biltmore Hotel, 1200 Anastasia Ave. in Coral Gables. For tickets and more information, go to www.GableStage.org.
