The cast includes Dan Domingues, Lisa Ramirez, Annie Henk, Liza Fernandez, Paola Lazaro-Munoz, Xochitl Romero, Gerardo Rodriguez and Haynes Thigpen. 

"A contemporary American drama, To The Bone is about Latina immigrant poultry workers in the U.S. and in the spirit of John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men gives audiences a look inside the lives of the invisible work force that puts food on our tables," press notes state. "The play was inspired by interviews conducted by Ms. Ramirez during a six month period in New York State's Sullivan County."

The production is part of the second annual Theater:Village festival, which presents a series of new plays in prominent West Village theatres based around the work of one playwright or common theme.

Scenic design is by Rachel Hauck with lighting design by Russell Champa, costume design by Theresa Squire and sound design by Jill Du Boff. Morgan Jenness is dramaturg, Terri Kohler is stage manager and Theresa Von Klug is general manager.

Ramirez's plays include Exit Cuckoo, Art of Memory, Invisible Women-Rise, To The Bone and All Fall Down.
