UGLY LIES THE BONE

When she returns, Jess is still coming to terms with her own physical and emotional scars as she grapples with the question of ‘What now?’ As she undergoes a new innovative recovery process involving virtual reality, she builds a new world where she can begin to heal herself.

“No, it’s not a typo. The new theatre company’s name is Innovocative Theatre, which immediately gets a red underline when I type it in my Word document (it thinks it’s a misspelling). There is obviously no such word, but it has been cleverly created by Staci Sabarsky and Dennis Duggan for their new theatre company, incorporating two of my favorite words, ‘innovative’ and ‘provocative.”

“…we excitedly welcome Innovocative Theatre to our local theatre family. And the good news is, they score a win with their first outing.”

— Broadway World  —

“— Innovocative seems poised to become a significant player in a theater scene that urgently needs more production companies.”

— Creative Loafing —

“Staci Sabarsky, Artistic Director for Innovocative Theatre, makes her mark in our area with her strong direction of KEELY & DU–acting, stage movement, and pace are all top flight”

— Peter Nason — (Broadway World)

“Innovocative Theatre entered the Tampa theatre scene last year with a serviceable Proof; it was a good show with lots of potential, but they weren’t quite a local player yet. That has now changed. With the powerful KEELY & DU, they have finally arrived,”

— Peter Nason — (Broadway World)
