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.
‘The Terrible Girls’ trilogy continues with ‘Skin & Bone’

“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
