Written shortly after the death of the playwright’s mother, this dark comedy explores the reunion of three sisters as they prepare for the funeral in their childhood home.

Troubled memories and lifelong grudges come to the surface as each woman struggles with their mother’s overshadowing presence on their lives and lovers.

As their partners arrive and the snow falls thicker outside claustrophobia sets in and deeply buried secrets are uncovered.

“With conflicting memories and dream like visions of the deceased we’re hoping to blur the lines between appearance and reality” said assistant director Rosie Chalmers.

It will be performed from Tuesday 14 to Saturday 18 November at 7pm.
