"After three tours in Afghanistan and months in a severe burns unit, Jess (Kate Fleetwood) finally returns to Florida. In a small town on the Space Coast, as the final shuttle is about the launch, Jess must confront her scars, and a home that may have changed even more than her. Experimenting with pioneering virtual reality therapy, she builds a breathtaking new world where she can escape her pain. There, she begins to restore her relationships, her life and, slowly, herself."
Lindsey Ferrentino’s drama premiered in New York and received a New York Times Critic's Pick, playing a sold-out run at Roundabout Theater Company.
Kate Fleetwood was last seen at the National Theatre in King Lear and recently starred in the feature film of the National's musical 'London Road'.

He is currently appearing in Dead Funny at the Vaudeville Theatre and makes his National Theatre debut.
Tickets for the production are now on sale.
