Pauline Adamek – Stage Raw
From lights up, playwright Meghan Brown’s drops her audience right into the swirling midst of her drama.
A woman enters a chintzy living room, startling the other occupant asleep on the couch. The two women immediately launch into the kind of messy rapid-fire argument familiar to siblings or long-time friends. But are they sisters?
