The European preem of “Ruined” and a new legit adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s “Through a Glass Darkly” are among the offerings on tap for the spring 2010 lineup at London’s Almeida Theater.

“Ruined,” Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer-winner about women in the Congo, will be helmed in Blighty by Indhu Rubasingham, who previously directed a London staging of Nottage’s play “Fabulation.” Jenny Jules and Lucian Msamati star in the production, which runs April 15-June 5.
