Our world premiere production of Ugly Lies the Bone follows recently discharged soldier Jess as she returns to her Florida hometown. She brings with her not only vivid memories of her three tours in Afghanistan, but painful burns that have left her physically and emotionally scarred. Jess soon realizes that things at home have changed even more than she has. Through the use of virtual reality video game therapy, she builds a breathtaking new world where she can escape her pain. As Jess advances farther in the game, she begins to restore her relationships, her life and, slowly, herself.

CRITICS' PICK. "A bracing drama that confronts an achingly topical issue with hardheaded honesty and admirable compassion. Lindsay Ferrentino is a brave playwright and a writer of dauntless conviction." —Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

"Mamie Gummer is extraordinary." —Jesse Green, New York Magazine
