my sister feather

A development day for my sister feather at Brunswick Mechanics Institute.

“Why are you older than me?”

“You needed more time Egg. You’re more precious than me.”

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 no brings them back together.

my sister feather is a new play about survival, love, and loss.

Shortlisted for the Rodney Seaborn Play Award 2017 and the Max Afford Playwrights’ Award 2018, my sister feather is the second play in a trilogy of work made by Liv Satchell about the relationship between grief, memory, and the female body. It follows I sat and waited but you were gone too long.

It will be produced in May 2018 (production details TBA).
