17 - 21 OCTOBER | EXPLOSIVES FACTORY | FRINGE FESTIVAL
by anna barnes
When a father sacrifices his daughter to end a war, the poison of violence tears their family apart. Wife turns on husband, sister turns against sister, children turn on their mother. It’s enough to really screw up your adolescence. Told in 26 striking fragments, MinusOneSister is Sophocles Electra wrenched into the furious present and placed in the hands of the young people at its centre. Anna Barnes’ stunning script breaks open the classic greek drama to bring its audience face to face with the challenge of violence and its capacity to make families into strangers, heroes into villains, and meaning into oblivion.
distressing themes including family violence, eating disorders, sexual assault, child abuse, and depictions of physical violence
