24 and 25 October| 18:00 – The Small Theatre
Three sisters decide to return home when their father unexpectedly goes missing. Nothing manages to stop their mother from being her ironic, cruel and acidic self, one who devours everything around her, including antidepressants, her daughters’ lives and the lies she hid in the distant past, not even the father’s death and his imminent funeral.
