Box Clever

Ruby appeared back onstage as the lead in the U.S. Premier of a two woman show from the U.K. entitled Box Clever. Written by Monsay Whitney, this play offers a witty and scathing critique of the various ways in which social service systems, put in place to protect vulnerable women, can end up serving as impediments to their safety and survival. Wolf’s character Marnie struggles to protect herself and her four-year-old daughter from the obstacles standing in her way: ambivalent caseworkers, abusive partners, and a continual lack of vital resources, both monetary and material. Ruby has since received two Barrymore Nominations for her performance: Outstanding Lead Performance in a Play and Outstanding Ensemble Performance in a Play (results announced October 14th, 2019).
