Ugly Lies The Bone

ugly-list2” Beauty is but skin deep, ugly lies the bone; Beauty dies and fades away, but ugly holds its own,”  Albert Einstein.   This quote is the source of the title of this remarkable play, performing in repertory at Shakespeare and Company until August 28. For the exact dates and times go to the company’s website, www.shakespeare.org

Bob and I were fortunate to talk with the director and two of the actors after we had seen the play. We were enlightened and moved by the experience of the young female veteran who is the focus of the play. Too often the long war in which our country has been engaged seems distant. This play shows the consequences for veterans and their families. The play is a blend of reality and hope that completely engages the audience in the moment as well as leaves them thinking for long afterwards.
