Photos: First Look at Mamie Gummer in Roundabout's UGLY LIES THE BONE

Roundabout Theatre Company presents the Roundabout Underground world-premiere production of Ugly Lies the Bone by Lindsey Ferrentino, directed by Patricia McGregor, as part of the 50th Anniversary Season. The cast will feature Karron Graves (Kacie), Mamie Gummer (Jess), Caitlin O'Connell (Voice / Their Mom), Chris Stack (Stevie) and Haynes Thigpen (Kelvin). Roundabout welcomes back Mamie Gummer, who made her New York stage debut in Roundabout's 2005 production of Mr. Marmalade.

The world premiere of Ugly Lies the Bone officially on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 at the Black Box Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street). This is a limited engagement through Sunday, November 22, 2015.

For this world premiere Roundabout Theatre Company is partnering with DeepStream VR, a company pioneering virtual reality to help relieve pain and improve quality of life, to allow audiences of Ugly Lies the Bone to experience the technology used to improve the quality of life for the play's central character, Jess (Gummer). DeepStream VR is creating the next generation of VR games with biofeedback to help patients manage pain, speed rehabilitation and achieve better health and wellness. More information about DeepStream VR is available at deepstreamvr.com.

Newly discharged soldier Jess (Gummer) has finally returned to her Florida hometown. She brings with her not only vivid memories of her three tours in Afghanistan, but painful burns that have left her physically and emotionally scarred. Jess soon realizes that things at home have changed even more than she has. Through the use of virtual reality video game therapy, she builds a breathtaking new world where she can escape her pain. As Jess advances farther in the game, she begins to restore her relationships, her life and, slowly, herself.
