Skin and Bone is the second play in Jacqueline Goldfinger’s trilogy of contemporary Southern Gothic plays. Aging sisters Midge and Madge run a broken down bed and breakfast that has a date with a wrecking ball. When a young woman appears, searching for clues about a former guest, the memories she stirs up sends all three women down the dark and dusty road of a past better left hidden. Audiences return to the quiet creepiness of this small North Florida town from Azuka’s 2011 World Premiere, the terrible girls.
“Goldfinger has a unique poetic voice. She isn’t writing just to entertain an audience (though she manages to do so); she is writing to pose questions that have no quick, simple answers.” – Philadelphia Weekly
