Kacey Mayeda

Sometimes you get thrown a curveball. Open Fist Theatre Company presents the world premiere of “To the Bone,” a darkly funny comedy about family, baseball, genetics — and the unexpected vagaries of life. Twenty years after the Red Sox lost their chance at the pennant when a Yankees fan bounded onto the field in the ninth inning to void what would have been the game-winning out, sisters Kelly Moran and Maureen Dugan still live on the “Irish Riviera” south of Boston, where they were known as “hard girls” back in high school.

The cast includes Tisha Terrasini Banker, Alice Kors, Jack Sharpe, and Amanda Weier.

Mayeda, who plays Darcy, is an L.A.-based actor and filmmaker with a bunch of reslient houseplants and a super anxious rescue dog. Recently, you might have seen her in “This Week, This Week,” listening to audiobooks at 2x speed, or singing loudly in her car.
