Rose Viper hates her daughter Cynthia, who reciprocates, they refuse help but welcome torture. 

Two extremely solitary women, powered by mist and rude thought, who appear to be performers in a farce straight from The West End…or Geelong. Rose Viper loves and detests her daughter Cynthia, whom she calls Sin. Cynthia reciprocates her hatred in a sad poetic tour de force. She knows poets aren’t jealous and would never force anything. Their mutual dependence is tinged with murder at any moment! Each minute is divided into real life pathos and all too-real potential tragedy. First performed at La Mama Courthouse in 2013.
