Bone on Bone


Bone on Bone is beautifully and subtly crafted play about an older couple going through a rough patch after 30 years of marriage. There are no grand hysterics or slamming doors. There is no villain; no one is at fault. It’s like real life?funny and sad and hopeful and fearful, all at the same time. It reminds me very much (and saying this means a lot to me) of Anton Chekhov’s plays.

I was mesmerized with the tenacity (with a rainbow of colors illuminating it!) of what was going on Bone on Bone. A lite touch in directing makes for so much power in what goes on in the relationship between the character — and it’s a rare gift when a director is able to structure a play with that! We, the audience, were invited into a world that was so intriguing and funny and infuriating — and — had us right there at home with Linda & Jonathan! I can’t wait to see what happens if Marylou expands it.

– Ginger Grace, actor and playwright

Bone of Bone was a terrific evening of intimate theatre! The play moved ? emotionally and physically — with wonderful grace and all the details were appreciated. Congratulations on creating a truly memorable and moving evening of theatre!!

– Fengar Gael, playwright

Bone on Bone is a very astute exploration of a long marriage and the importance of who we are as individuals and the power that has in shaping our lives together.
