BONE ON BONE by Marylou DiPierto

When Linda, a 59 year old artist, reunites with her mentor, her world is turned upside and she is forced to choose between her thirty-five year marriage and the career she always dreamed of having.
About the Playwright:
Marylou DiPietro (Playwright) earned her B.A. in Creative Writing from Syracuse University. She then moved to New York City, where she did everything from waiting on tables, to selling candy bars on the street, to working as the studio assistant to artist LeRoy Neiman, to teaching creative writing in nursing homes. When a friend insisted that she study acting at HB Studio because it would “help her writing,” she decided to give it a try. It didn’t take long for her to discover, that she didn’t want to act in plays as much as she wanted to write them. She went on to earn her M.A. in Theatre Education at Emerson College, where the full-length version of her play, Cold Water Flat, won first prize in the Playwrights’ Festival. Off-Broadway readings of her play, Black Butterflies, which is based on the life of Rose Williams, took place at Abingdon Theatre Company and at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Playwrights’ Horizons. This is her second production at Manhattan Rep; the first, a one-act version of Cold Water Flat, directed by Kim T. Sharp and starring Michael Folie, and Ruby Reese, took place last June. She is thrilled to be working with Kim and Mike again, and with the very talent Stephanie Karpell for the first time, on her new play, Bone on Bone.
