BONES

Sold out

At night, a young black boy is 'questioned' by a white South African


policeman. A terrible incident and the truth is buried. 36 years later,


when the truth is dug up, a tortured Jennifer watches over her dying


husband. But does her maid Beauty have the power to 'save' him, and is the price of remembering a dreadful secret one that Jennifer is


prepared to pay?

BONES is a ruthless excavation of South Africa in 2005, and in an age of threats, retribution and bloody revenge, it is an anthem for hope.

Kay Adshead's previous plays at the Bush Theatre include the internationally acclaimed Fringe First Winner THE BOGUS WOMAN, and BITES, which was shortlisted for the 2006 Susan Smith Blackburn Award.
