By Lindsey Ferrentino
Directed by Phillip Webster

The Memorial Hall Green Ballroom
The fight continues for a discharged soldier striving to recuperate her injuries and save the life she knew.
Newly discharged soldier Jess has finally returned to her Florida hometown. She brings with her not only vivid memories of Afghanistan, but painful burns that have left her physically and emotionally scarred. Jess soon realizes that things at home have changed even more than she has. Through the use of virtual reality video game therapy, she builds a breathtaking new world where she can escape her pain. As Jess advances farther in the game, she begins to restore her relationships, her life, and, slowly, herself.
Directed by United States Air Force veteran Phillip Webster, UGLY LIES THE BONE pays tribute to Memorial Hall’s genesis as a venue for veterans, and to the centennial of the founding of Disabled Veterans of America at Memorial Hall in 1920.
