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
