Every play has its own origin story. And from the origin story comes its sense of inevitability. I didn’t know the origin story of Ugly Lies the Bone when I first read it, nor that playwright Lindsey Ferrentino talks about a wholly visceral response she had when reading the story that first brought this play to her heart. But I do know that in first reading, this play pulsed with the kind of “this story HAS to be told” vibrancy that makes you sit forward and pay the closest of attention. (A writer told me once that in his weekly phone conversations with his father, his dad would say “So, you writing down any plays?” This particular playwright loved that question, and the implication that he didn’t so much have to think up the plays — he just had to write them down.) Ugly Lies the Bone is a play that Lindsey Ferrentino so clearly and palpably had to write down. Had to write, had to live with, had to birth, had to share. Her sense of urgent and compassionate curiosity about the physical and psychic healing process of a young veteran ticks like a fast clock and makes this one of the more necessary pieces of work we’ve had the gift of sharing with you in a long time. That it also gives all of us the opportunity to step into the shoes of a member of our military and by so doing, to more fully understand the sacrifice and strength that life requires is the even greater gift. Know that you are about to meet a writer the New York Times cited for her dauntless conviction, and a heroine of dauntless courage. We thank Lindsey Ferrentino for being the former, and we thank all of our men and women, currently and formerly in military service, for inspiring the latter.

BLASTING OFF Lindsey Ferrentino — Space Coast native, in-demand playwright — returns to the Alliance, her professional launching pad.

L

indsey Ferrentino grew up in a loud and boisterous family of storytellers and professional comedians in a tight community along Florida’s Space Coast. A large and sunny sign said “Welcome to Merritt Island … Where Dreams are Launched.” Her most visceral childhood memories are of watching shuttle launches from her roof. “Rockets that literally shook my house,” she recalls. “Schools would stop, cars would pull off the highway. Whether you were in a bank or a grocery store — everyone would pause their life for a brief moment, stand together and silently look at the sky.” When NASA ended its shuttle program, Ferrentino’s hometown took a hit. For her, the loss of that “very American dream,” that frontier spirit, came at a great cost and had a ripple effect on how people interacted. “If you take away that communal hope, that capacity to explore, what is next? What does the next dream for our country look like?” Ferrentino’s Ugly Lies the Bone explores 8 ENCOREATLANTA.COM

those questions, though the playwright admits that the answers remain elusive. Ferrentino, who just turned 28, has completed 10 full-length plays. This season her work is being seen coast to coast and beyond, from the Goodman Theatre’s New Stages Festival in Chicago to South Coast Repertory in California, and from the New Works Lab at New York’s Playwrights Horizons to the National Theatre in London. Her big year takes off here, at the Alliance Theatre, “the first theater to ever treat me like a professional,” says Ferrentino, the only two-time finalist in the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition (with Magic Man in 2014 and this February with Moonlight on the Bayou). Ferrentino has master’s degrees in playwriting from both Hunter College and Yale. Most recently, she’s been in residence at London’s National Theatre, where she was commissioned to write the book and lyrics for a new musical, and took part in casting and design sessions for a British production of Ugly. She’s floored that it’ll be staged in a

theater with 900 seats (the Hertz has 200). At the center of Ugly is Jess, a combat veteran who returns to her Florida home after a third tour in Afghanistan. She’s disfigured from severe burns that leave her in constant pain. She turns to virtual-reality treatment for therapy — or, more precisely — to distract herself from the agony. Ugly juxtaposes Jess’ hopes and prospects with the declining possibilities of her hometown. The play took root a few years ago, when Ferrentino was applying to Yale. Right after her Yale interview, she recalls, she was on a train and reading on her phone when she came across a GQ magazine article. It profiled a burn-survivor soldier with chronic pain who was a perfect candidate for Snow World, the pain-distracting virtualreality experiences. Ferrentino was overcome with “that feeling of needing to run but being trapped on a train.” Ugly Lies the Bone, described as haunting and hopeful, had its world premiere last year at New York’s Roundabout Underground, with Mamie Gummer (Meryl Streep’s daughter) as Jess. Writing for The New York Times, critic Charles Isherwood called Ferrentino brave and said she’s a “writer of dauntless conviction.” He described Ugly as a “bracing drama that confronts an achingly topical issue with hardheaded honesty.” Rex Reed, writing in the New York Observer, called Ugly “a play of small moments that hide big emotions.” Ferrentino considers herself a sentimental and nostalgic person “who hates

sentimentality and nostalgia.” Her central concern when writing a play is, “Does it speak to America here and now, and is it a story I can personally crawl inside?” She’s interested in “stories of people fighting to carve out a place for themselves in the world, to find and redefine home.” Playwright Sarah Ruhl (Eurydice, In the Next Room or the vibrator play) is a mentor and friend who has described Ferrentino’s approach as “looking at the sun without burning your eyes.” With each play, Ferrentino says, she’s “looking at the sun more and more closely” but doesn’t always want the audience to know what sun she’s looking at. Most of her plays are autobiographical in some way, she says, because you can take the girl out of Florida, but “Oh, you cannot take the Florida out of the girl.” “I pretend to be a two-master’s-degreestoting playwright but would always rather be in cutoff shorts, flip-flops, saying ‘y’all’ and adding ‘ass’ to the end of words.” Florida doesn’t fit the Southern stereotype, she says: “You know, sticky porches, lemonade, slow-moving fans.” Her home, she says, was fast, bright and “gloriously” tacky, a culture dominated by water sports, where people hunt alligators, fish for sharks (“horribly gruesome”) and go “mudding” — speeding through muddy swamps to get their trucks good and dirty. Ferrentino creates people who speak their minds. Her characters don’t lie or cover things up. It’s more like, “Here is the truth about me and what I think of you, so we can move on.” A ALLIANCETHEATRE.ORG

program note Lindsey Ferrentino: Working with determination toward excellence

someone from Louisiana’s Gulf Coast would understand the region with such depth: the oil industry, the pull of the sea, the permeable boundary between the real and the magic that defines Louisiana and its dialect. But Lindsey, one of the most rigorous researchers and redrafters in American theater, has for a third time made us select her as one to watch. It is not surprising that Lindsey’s breakout play, Ugly Lies the Bone, shows the struggles of extreme effort and determination. The drama centers around private battles with pain and despair as a soldier, indeed a warrior in the more classical sense of the word, returns to civilian life. Representations of veterans as victims are sometimes the easy choice for playwrights. Lindsey deftly represents the warrior spirit and drive as alive and well, although in a period of recovery. Even if Lindsey wasn’t an Alliance/Kendeda alum, this is a play that perfectly embodies the Alliance’s mission of “expanding hearts and minds.”

Thanks to everyone in Atlanta’s veteran and veteran services community who gave generously of their time and knowledge to help us work accurately on this show. Special thanks to Command Sergeant Major Gretchen Evans, Veteran Outreach Coordinator, Emory’s Veterans Program; Cavalry Troop Commander Garrett Cathcart, Southeast Regional Director, Team Red White and Blue; Howard Rose, CEO & Co-founder and Ari Hollander, CTO & Co-founder, DeepStream VR; and Dr. Barbara Rothbaum, PhD, ABPP, Director of Emory’s Veterans Program and Trauma & Anxiety Recovery Program. The company would like to thank the veterans in the audience for the sacrifices they have made for our country and for the bravery, courage and strength they have exhibited both abroad and at home. We are honored to be able to tell this story. 10 ENCOREATLANTA.COM

he Alliance Theatre first met Lindsey Ferrentino in February 2014 — the 10th anniversary of the Alliance/ Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition. It’s fitting that we met her during an anniversary year, because she is a milestone kind of writer. Her play Magic Man detailed with devastating emotional and linguistic accuracy the cumulative effects of gang-related shootings of children on Chicago’s South Side. Lindsey read about a funeral home that specialized in children’s funerals, and instead of sighing in horror, educated herself about the issue, the place and the time, and wrote a haunting and deeply sad play. To write Magic Man, she found tapes of neighborhood residents talking, listened to them and transcribed them over and over until the unique dialogue of the specific place lived in the muscles of her hands and her imagination. The play seemed authentic because Lindsey trained herself with the determination of an athlete to sound like the South Side of Chicago. The Alliance didn’t recognize her second Alliance/Kendeda finalist play, Moonlight on the Bayou, as a Lindsey Ferrentino play; she’s from Florida and, we thought, only

discover us. discover you. discover us. discover you. Kudos to Ugly Lies the Bone playwright Lindsey Ferrentino who, through her writing, allowed me to see the tragedies of war from a lens that we don’t often see — that of a woman. A woman who, we learn in the play, was beautiful before she decided to serve her country and was sent to war, and now faces the everyday reality of what is gone — her beauty replaced by constant pain. At first you’re saddened by what has happened to her, but in the end you get the awesome opportunity to witness how a virtual-reality tool helps her progress beyond her focus on her pain and gain strength. Thank you to the Alliance Theatre for having the courage to bring to the stage an issue that highlights the everyday struggles and triumphs of our wounded warriors. Donna Bowman U.S. Army Veteran / Alliance Theatre Advisory Board Member

synopsis: Jess is a newly discharged soldier who returns to her hometown of Titusville, Fla., with more than the emotional scars of war. Badly burned over most of her body, Jess turns to a new virtual-reality therapy to escape her physical and emotional pain. At the same time her sister Kacie shoulders the burdens of caretaking while working in a community hard hit by both a recession and the closing of the Space Program. This play beautifully portrays bravery on many fronts.

about the alliance theatre The Alliance Theatre is Atlanta’s national theater, expanding hearts and minds on stage and off. Founded in 1968, the Alliance Theatre is the leading producing theater in the Southeast, reaching more than 165,000 patrons annually. The Alliance delivers powerful programming that challenges adult and youth audiences to think critically and care deeply. Under the leadership of Susan V. Booth, Jennings Hertz Artistic Director, the Alliance Theatre received the Regional Theatre Tony Award® in recognition of sustained excellence in programming, education, and community engagement. Known for its high artistic standards and national role in creating significant theatrical works, the Alliance has premiered more than 100 original productions including Tony Award® winners The Color Purple by Alice Walker, Aida by Elton John and Tim Rice, and Alfred Uhry’s The Last Night of Ballyhoo. The Alliance has developed and premiered important American musicals with a strong track record of Broadway, touring, and subsequent productions, including the world premieres of Sister Act: The Musical, Twyla Tharp’s Come Fly Away, Bring It On: The Musical, Stephen King and John Mellencamp’s Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, the world premiere of the new musical Tuck Everlasting, and most recently, Born for This: the BeBe Winans Story. The Alliance also creates and nurtures the careers of artists through the Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition, producing the world premiere for the competition winner as part of the regular season, and the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab, providing developmental support and production resources for three performing arts projects each year. The Alliance’s dedication to providing access to the arts is reflected in its commitment to creating new work for all ages, and to bringing that work into classrooms and communities across Atlanta and throughout the region. More than 50,000 students each year experience age-specific professional performances and participate in acting classes, drama camps, and in-school initiatives through the Alliance Theatre Acting Program and Education Department. The Alliance’s groundbreaking Kathy and Ken Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young performances offer professionally-produced, fully interactive theater for infants and toddlers; the Palefsky Collision Project invites high school artists to create and perform new civic-minded theater based on a classic text; and community acting classes and skill-building workshops engage professional artists, young actors, business leaders, and curious learners of all ages. Twice recognized by the U.S. Department of Education for leadership in arts education, the Alliance Arts for Learning Institute equips classroom teachers with theatrical techniques that link directly to school curriculum and have been empirically proven to improve student learning. These programs include Georgia Wolf Trap Early Learning Through the Arts and Dramaturgy K–12, in which students create research material that informs Alliance productions and prepares peer audiences. The work produced by the Alliance allows locally based artists the chance to create on a nationally watched stage, building and sustaining Atlanta’s artistic community. The vision of the Alliance Theatre is to be a beacon of leadership for the national field, while remaining deeply rooted in and reflective of our local Atlanta community. MISSION Atlanta’s national theater, expanding hearts and minds on stage and off. VISION The Alliance will lead the national field by deeply engaging with its local community, modeling radical inclusion and catalytic experiences on our stages, in our classrooms, and throughout Atlanta. alliancetheatre.org or 404.733.4650
