Skin and Bones

Skin and Bones is a collision of worlds, a conversation between a retired theatre usher and a bouncer. The conversation is far from usual—Katharine masquerades as a Vietnam vet to defy Marly’s expectations, and Marly counters by convincing Katherine that she has Alzheimer’s. The characters play to each other’s greatest insecurities, going farther than any stranger should—and through this dishonesty and psychological torture, they recognize their need for connection and find a bond between them. This is a play about loneliness, about feeling left out after following all of society’s expectations—and about finding a way to keep living.

Silvia and Cat Henson have just moved from a tiny apartment in Washington, DC, into their sprawling dream home in the small town of Greenville, Delaware. But the house only happens to be in their price range because it was most recently the home of a teenaged mass shooter and his single mother. Within days of moving in, they're confronted by a mayor who wants to erase their house from the map, a neighbor who wants to turn it into a museum, and an alarmingly well-adjusted consultant who specializes in the macabre. Is this the right time and place for Silvia and Cat to start a family, or will the house create a rift between them they can't ever mend?
