Directed by Dev Bondarin

November 6-22, 2014

When a soldier home from serving in Afghanistan ends his life, grief settles over his family and the partner he leaves behind. In a series of scenes moving ahead a year at a time, loss transforms a family and sorrow finds a home in the bones of those left behind. 

In The Bones was originally commissioned as a one-act by Manhattan Theatre Works in New York City, as part of their “ReWorks: The Spanish Civil War” evening. The play was expanded to its full-length version for a premier workshop by Acadiana Repertory Theatre in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Join us for a special talkback performance on Saturday, November 22 at 2pm, featuring Artistic Director Dev Bondarin, Playwright Cody Daigle, and special guest Jennifer Michael Hecht, the best-selling author of Doubt and Stay
