Roundabout Underground presents Ugly Lies The Bone


Roundabout Underground presents the world premiere of a new play by Lindsey Ferrentino entitled Ugly Lies The Bone, directed by Patricia McGregor, which begins previews on 10 September 2015 at the Black Box Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.

Synopsis: "Newly discharged soldier Jess has finally returned 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."

Ugly Lies The Bone, which was presented as part of last year’s Underground Reading Series at Roundabout, is the first-ever recipient of a Special Citation of Excellence from The Laurents / Hatcher Foundation.

Casting and creative team members will be announced at a later date.
