Rattlestick Playwrights Theater has extended its world-premiere engagement of Florencia Lozano's memory play underneathmybed an additional week of performances through Oct. 16.

Penned by "One Life to Live" actress Lozano, underneathmybed takes a look at an Argentinian family living in a Boston suburb and the frightening political climate of the country they left behind. The work opened Sept. 10 and was originally scheduled to conclude Oct. 10.

Actor Pedro Pascal, who appeared Off-Broadway in Some Men and Based on a Totally True Story, is making his directorial debut with the play that features actors Vanessa Aspillaga, Maria Cellario, Matthew Dellapina, Audrey Esparza, Vivia Font, Charles Goforth, Yetta Gottesman, Paula Pizzi, Marina Pulido and Ed Trucco.

According to Rattlestick, "There's something underneath Daisy's bed...something or someone. Everything is not fine in Newton. The ghosts of a foreign dirty war invade the home of the chaotic Jimenez family, while a woman remembers the moment in her life when she disappeared for good."

Designing underneathmybed are Raul Abrego (scenic design), Olivera Gajic (costume design), Nicole Pearce (lighting design), Janie Bullard (sound design), Eugenia Furneaux-Arends (properties) and Katie Takacs (technical direction).

As an actress, Lozano is best known for her role as attorney Téa Delgado on "One Life to Live." She has appeared on television in "Law & Order," "Gossip Girl" and "Ugly Betty," and on stage in Where's My Money, Privilege and Macbeth for Shakespeare in the Park. She has also penned the full-length play Under Her Breath. Short plays include Bitch and Charlie Go Back to Charlie's House and Sheila, Jack, Claire Danes and The Man On My Roof.
