BANGOR – The title intrigues you first: from an aphorism attributed to Einstein, concluding “beauty dies and fades away, but ugly holds its own.” It is a familiar sentiment skewed sideways; a refraction, a sliver of broken mirror. A pretty rhyme for a vaguely malignant reminder, and your first indication that you are intended to witness cruelty entwined with kindness, pain with beauty.

“Ugly Lies the Bone” is still making a name for playwright Lindsey Ferrentino: appearing Off-Broadway, garnering a New York Times Critics’ Pick and eventually playing at the National Theatre of London. Its Maine premiere at Penobscot Theatre Company further emphasizes that this specific story of a single family in Titusville, Florida is universally relevant.

But “specific” should not be confused with “small.” How can one play encompass so many variations on what it means to heal? Its scope and complexity make significant demands of its artistic team and audience alike.
