The Donahue Sisters $12.99

Geraldine Aron

Published by Samuel French Ltd

0 Male 3 Female

The attic of the family home in Ireland, once a playroom, is the setting for this sinister play from the author of Bar and Ger

Awaiting the death of their father, sisters talk about their unhappy lives long into the night

The time comes for a ritual re-enactment of a violent incident from their childhood

Departing from the hitherto naturalistic style, Aron imaginatively has the sisters speak and act in unison to create the persona of a young boy

When the ritual is complete, things return to normal and the women seem to have found answers to their problems

Remaining is the uneasy prospect of the past repeating itself

Inventive and mysterious, this one act play is a challenge to both actors and directors
