Ugly Lies the Bone
After three tours in Afghanistan, Jess (Kate Fleetwood) finally returns to Florida. In a small town on the Space Coast, as the final shuttle is about to launch, Jess must confront her scars – and a home that may have changed even more than her.
Experimenting with a pioneering virtual reality therapy, she builds a breathtaking new world where she can escape her pain. There, she begins to restore her relationships, her life and, slowly, herself.
Award-winning American playwright Lindsey Ferrentino makes her UK debut with this honest and funny new drama, directed by Indhu Rubasingham.
Kate Fleetwood puts in a thrilling display as Jess. Is there a more versatile actress alive? How she suggests the raw horror of physical pain is sensational. How she suggests the determination to defeat that pain is miraculous.
