The upcoming 29th Huntington season will also include the Pulitzer Prize-winning Off-Broadway hit Ruined by the acclaimed Lynn Nottage (Intimate Apparel, Fabulation) at the B.U.

Liesl Tommy will direct.
Additional information about the Huntington's 2010-11 season, including dates, casting, and further production information for Ruined, is to be announced.
