When you are unseen, how can you seek justice? When you don't have a voice, how can you defend your rights?

Diving into one of the most explosive conversations of the American political landscape, TO THE BONE follows five undocumented immigrant women struggling to survive the harsh realities of life at an East Coast poultry factory. The limitations of friendship, family bonds, dignity and dreams are put to the test in this timely, textured drama from Lisa Ramirez (EXIT CUCKOO - nanny in motherland, Ubuntu Theater Project 2016).

Inspired by interviews with undocumented immigrant workers in a poultry factory in upstate New York, Ramirez's play reveals the strengths and weaknesses, dreams and nightmares of one voiceless segment of the American workforce, and serves as a fierce and fervent cry for women’s rights, immigrants’ rights--and ultimately, human rights.
