Ugly Lies The BoneDuration tbc

National Theatre Lyttelton, South Bank, London, United Kingdom, SE1 9PX

Ralf Little, Kris Marshall and Kate Fleetwood star in the European premiere of award-winning playwright Lindsey Ferrentino’s funny and honest new therapy drama Ugly Lies The Bone.

‘Beauty is but skin deep, ugly lies the bone; beauty dies and fades away, but ugly holds its own.’ After three tours in Afghanistan and months in a severe burns unit, Jess finally returns to Florida.  In a small town on the Space Coast, as the final shuttle is about the launch, Jess must confront her scars, and a home that may have changed even more than her.

Experimenting with 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 playwright Lindsey Ferrentino’s honest and funny new drama is directed by Indhu Rubasingham, with set design by Es Devlin.
