Logan Marshall-Green Stars in NY Premiere of 'Rag and Bone'

In Mr. Haidle's play, Jeff and George, mourning the death of their mother, struggle to make ends meet at the family ladder store, which George also utilizes as a front for the black market sale of human hearts.

The cast of Rag and Bone includes Michael Chernus (American Sligo, Essential Self Defense), Logan Marshall-Green (Swimming in the Shallows, Dog Sees God), Kevin Jackson (Topdog/Underdog, Fences), Deidre O'Connell (Fugue, Stone Cold Dead Serious), Henry Stram (Inherit the Wind, The Crucible), Audrey Lynn Weston (Rearviewmirror, Work) and David Wohl (Fiddler on the Roof, Dinner at Eight).
The creative team is comprised of Dane Laffrey (sets), Oana Botez-Ban (costumes), Ben Stanton (lights), and Eric Shim (sound). Christina Lowe is Production Stage Manager and Heather Davidson is Assistant Stage Manager.
