  • Pulitzer Prize for Drama - 2009

A passionate, heartfelt play about surviving in a time of civil war, by a leading American dramatist.

Pulitzer Prize for Drama, 2009

A small mining town deep in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In Mama Nadi’s bar her rules apply. No arguments, no politics, no guns.

When two new girls arrive, tainted with the stigma of their recent past, Mama is forced to reassess her business priorities and personal loyalties. As tales of local atrocities spread and tensions between rebels and government militia rise, the realities of life in civil war provide the ultimate test of the human spirit.

The volume includes lyrics and music from the original production.
