My Sister In This House
by Wendy Kesselman
Produced by IntuThink
Directed by Hanna Wiles
Cast: Hanna Waite, Georgia Clare, Shelley Hill and Keeley Harker
Winner of the Playbill Award
and produced to acclaim at the Actors Theatre of Louisville
originally, and at NYC's Second Stage.
This extraordinary all-woman drama is set in provincial France
in the early 1930's. Two young, country sisters enter domestic
service in the bourgeois household of a penurious widow and her
homely daughter. Neither pair speaks to the other: two sets of
women separated and confined by social convention, personality,
and the house itself. The relationship of the sisters slowly
evolves into obsession, brought about by isolation and by emotions
left from childhood. Trapped in a garret room, the sisters'
violent downstairs-upstairs collision with Madame Danzard and the
lumpy Isabelle seems certain.
"A subtle, almost tender
study of four lonely women whose strange and complex relationship
ends in an outrage of violence . . . A haunting beauty of a play" - N.Y. Post
