Written by Denise Despeyroux, translated by Sarah Maitland.


Twin sisters attempt an awkward exercise of pretending to be someone else, taking them close to the line that separates good and evil; the love of life and destruction; lucidity and madness. What do you do to pose as someone inside of you? Can you love the living in the same way that you have love for the dead? Is darkness hindered by light?

Formally inventive play boasting an impressive double performance by Maite Jáuregui

The Stage

Twin sisters Andromeda and Lucy, separated by distance and views on life, discuss deep themes while examining who they are

Everything Theatre

It asked some interesting questions and maybe the point is that you have to find the answer for yourself
