“RAW AND INESCAPABLY MOVING. A PLAY OF SMALL MOMENTS THAT HIDE BIG EMOTIONS.”

REX REED, THE OBSERVER

New Zealand Premiere

1 - 5 February

8.00 pm

The Dome, BATS Theatre

A compelling, honest, and moving story of courage and resilience from award-winning playwright Lindsey Ferrentino. Recently discharged soldier, Jess (Harriet Prebble), returns from  Afghanistan physically and emotionally scarred. Moving home to Florida to rehabiliate Jess finds that life has moved on perhaps more than she has. NASA has cut the space programme, jobs are hard to find and ex-boyfriend Stevie (Jacob Osborne) has married. Her sister Kacie (Victoria Stevens), struggles with Jess's instant dislike of her new boyfriend Kelvin (Nathan Weatherhead), and her reluctance to meet their ailing Mother (Simone Kennedy).

To escape her pain, Jess begins experimental virtual reality therapy where she builds a breathtaking world and slowly repairs wounds past and present as she heals her relationships, her life and herself.

 

The heart of Ugly Lies the Bone explores issues of empowerment and the human cost to individuals and their relationships when experiencing severe trauma, with some light touches of humour.

Please note this show deals with adult language and themes (PTSD), sound of gunfire
