'To the Bone' Off Broadway Review: Undocumented Immigrants Carve Out a Living

'To the Bone' Off Broadway Review: Undocumented Immigrants Carve Out a Living
BY MICHAEL SOMMERS

OFF BROADWAY REVIEW

A drama about immigrant women who slave in a poultry processing plant in upstate New York, “To the Bone” is a serious new work that deserves further development. Lisa Ramirez, who wrote the play and gives a flinty performance in a leading role, might even consider reworking it as a film.

Opening on Wednesday in the Cherry Lane Theater’s 60-seat studio space, “To the Bone” receives a supportive production by director Lisa Peterson that handles the play’s demand for numerous locations including the factory and its nasty processing line, rooms in a house where several workers live in growing disharmony, a medical clinic and a number of rides in a van.
