Five years ago I read a short play on New Play Exchange by Chicago playwright Calamity West about a meeting between estranged sisters. I was struck by the way the script portrayed the women with nuance and complexity - full of contradiction, like we all are. While the circumstances are simple, the script asks big questions: What does it mean to be sisters? And even more universally, how do we respond when the people we love grow and change in ways we might not understand? I was gripped by Calamity’s exploration of this relationship, and so teamed up with Mary and Katherine to bring it to life.
A sibling is so precious, and the chance to reconnect with them can seem like a fleeting dream as life speeds forward. This story shows that it is worth taking the time to stay at the table, and work through your differences.
