After her estranged parent’s phone line has been disconnected, Moira Lane begrudgingly returns to the home she abandoned eight years ago only to find things far worse than she could have feared. Her father, William, has taken to peeing in coffee mugs and her mother, Bonnie, claims to have had a miraculous birth. Believing the “baby” to be her youngest daughter reincarnated, Bonnie is convinced that Faeries in the woods have blessed the family with a second chance. As a terrible storm moves in, Moira must battle her family’s madness and navigate the years of guilt and grief feeding the storm if she has any hope of getting out alive.

    Deeply chilling, beautiful, and unnerving. I had shivers upon shivers reading it; it would be a blast to see this piece in production.

    We had the pleasure of mounting a developmental production of TWIGS AND BONE in the fall of 2015. Haunting, mysterious, at times comical, TWIGS became an instant favorite of our audiences. Weaving a story with many twists and turns and a conclusion that will leave you discussing this show for weeks, TWIGS AND BONE is a tour de force that will leave you wanting more from Ms. Antone.

    Twigs and Bone is simultaneously ferocious and hilarious. Tiffany Antone is a brilliant writer.
