Ugly Lies the Bone
Jess returns from three military tours in Afghanistan a broken person. She’s left feeling depressed and angry until she’s introduced to virtual reality, which transports her into a more mobile and manageable world. At the center of this production is the talented Karen Bombardier who gives us a layered Jess—not always sympathetic, but always authentic.
