TO THE BONE - FREE Staged Reading by Lisa Ramirez
SAG-AFTRA San Francisco-NorCal Local Presents
TO THE BONE is directed by nationally-renowned Lisa Peterson, and performed by SAG-AFTRA actress and playwright Lisa Ramirez and a stellar cast of SAG-AFTRA actors.
A contemporary American drama, TO THE BONE is about Latina immigrant poultry workers in the U.S. and, in the spirit of John Steinbeck, gives audiences a look inside the lives of the invisible work force that puts food on our tables. TO THE BONE was commissioned and developed by The Working Theater in New York City, and premiered Off Broadway in September, 2014, at Cherry Lane Theatre, starring Ms. Ramirez and directed by Lisa Peterson. The play was a finalist for the National New Play Network Smith Prize.
“Ramirez’s rawly poetic dialogue sears the heart while Lisa Peterson’s unflinching staging crafts images that haunt the mind.” -- Time Out New York
SAG-AFTRA brings together two great American labor unions: Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. SAG-AFTRA represents more than 160,000 performers and the San Francisco-Northern California local has over 4,500 members including film and television actors, announcers, broadcast journalists, dancers, DJs, news writers and editors, program hosts, puppeteers, recording artists, singers, stunt performers and voiceover artists.
The staged reading is followed by a Memorial Birthday Tribute to Harry Bridges (7/26/01 to 3/30/90) with cake, champagne and music. Harry Bridges was a founder and long-time leader of the ILWU. See http://www.ilwu.org/oral-history-of-harry-bridges/
