my sister feather

“I thought I’d let her know I made it after all.”

Tilly and Egg have been waiting for their mother to find them. They haven’t seen her since she disappeared during a game of hide-and-seek when they were kids.

They’re middle-aged when Tilly receives two letters from her. She’s dead. Egg’s in prison, and Tilly needs special permission to visit and let her know.

Tilly was supposed to keep Egg close but it’s only the spectre of their mother that now brings them back together.

my sister feather is the second play in a trilogy of works by Olivia Satchell about grief, memory and the female body. Written for Melbourne’s leading performers Belinda McClory and Emily Tomlins, this world premiere has been shortlisted for the Rodney Seaborn Playwrights’ Award 2017 and Max Afford Playwrights’ Award 2018.

On Friday the 1st of June $5 for every full price ticket for this performance will be donated to the Victorian Women’s Trust

McClory centres the production with a hilarious and horrifying incarnation of toxic femininity.

Tomlins is one of the finest actors working on our stages, and this performance is a masterclass in precision and conviction.
