Marie is a 9/11 widow who lost her fireman husband in the tragedy. Five years later, she is remarried to a fine man, and her teenage son is doing well. That’s when the bones start coming–and keep coming–via Fedex from the NYC authorities. Then a mysterious woman appears, telling Marie she’s getting the wrong bones. The world-premiere of Another Bone
asks the question: how do you move forward after total devastation, and all the debris that goes with it? Featuring Jeff Award-winner, Jacqueline Grandt, along with Redtwist company members, Jan Ellen Graves and Michael Sherwin.
