One of Melbourne’s most exciting new theatrical talents tells a story of women, prison and reconciling the past
Playwright and director Olivia Satchell's my sister feather was shortlisted for both the Rodney Seaborn Playwrights’ Award and the Max Afford Playwrights’ Award, and will have its premiere at the La Mama Courthouse.
It's the second play in a trilogy that Satchell is creating about grief and the female body, following on from I sat and waited but you were gone too long. Satchell is bringing together two of the brightest lights of Melbourne's indie theatre scene to perform opposite one another: Emily Tomlins and Belinda McClory. They play middle-aged sisters who haven't seen each other for decades. Their lives have gone in wildly different directions, but one sister is visiting the other in prison to deliver a letter from their mother.
