“Would you take me on if you knew I could kill with a glance?”
In this deadpan comedy three sisters fight it out in a run down beach house on the Mornington Peninsula. If only its peeling 70’s wallpapered walls could talk, what stories would they tell of these three middle-aged sisters? After a lifetime of sibling rivalry, fat shaming and flaky parenting it’s no surprise that a boiling battle of wills erupts after their mother’s death. Resolution proves impossible until the eldest sister, AKA Medusa, arrives equipped with a large pair of gardening shears and her petrifying gaze.
A play that exposes the comedy in the family tragedy, or could it be the other way around?
