Kicking off the 90th anniversary season of the legendary Cherry Lane Theatre (38 Commerce St. in Greenwich Village), TO THE BONE examines the lives of the undocumented, Latina immigrants who are subjected to substandard working conditions in the poultry plants of New York's Sullivan County. Inspired by interviews conducted by Ms. Ramirez and in the spirit of John Steinbecck's OF MICE AND MEN, the story gives audiences a look inside the lives of the invisible work force that puts food on our tables. At the center of the play, also, is the ongoing drama that surrounds the ways and means in which immigrant workers live and toil in the shadows in the country, in fear of being deported as games of political football concerning immigration are played across the country, often in out-of-the-way places like Sullivan County where opportunities exist but danger persists.

The cast for TO THE BONE features Lisa Ramirez, Annie Henk, Liza Fernandez, Paola Lázaro-Muñoz, Xochitl Romero, J.J. Perez, Gerardo Rodriguez and Haynes Thigpen. Scenic design is by Rachel Hauck, lighting design by Russell Champa, costume design by Theresa Squire, sound design by Jill Du Boff. Morgan Jenness is dramaturg, Terri Kohler is stage manager and Theresa Von Klug is general manager.

Cherry Lane Theatre is one of the most renowned theaters in the country, having produced a large succession of plays by nascent writers whose names have lent distinction to the American and international literary and dramatic treasuries dating back to the 20s: F. Scott Fitzgerald, Auden, Gertrude Stein, Beckett, Albee, Pinter and many more. In 1996 Angelina Fiordellisi revived Cherry Lane, preserved the building and detailed history, and founded the producing company Cherry Lane Alternative, creating a number of programs to launch the next generation of American playwrights.

Angelina Fiordellisi is Founding Artistic Director of Cherry Lane Theatre; Seri Lawrence is Literary Manager and Janio Marrero is Facility Director.
