Overview

The Muscolinos have raised three proud and passionate daughters. Each of them bonded by a fierce love for one another and harbouring a secret longing that could tear the family apart.

When an earth-shattering event rocks their Park Slope neighbourhood, life comes to a screeching halt and the sisters are forced to confront their conflicting visions for the future in this gripping, provocative and poignant portrait of love in all its danger and beauty.

Originally commissioned by The Roundabout Theatre Company and currently nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award 2019. The Original Theatre Company (Monogamy, Birdsong,The Habit of Art) are proud to present the UK premiere of Meghan Kennedy’s enthralling coming-of-age tale directed by Lisa Blair whose recent credits include a five star revival of Jerusalem.

Age Recommendation: 12+

Critic reviews

Altogether this is a forgettable experience, despite a lovely cast who should definitely star in something else together at some other time to develop their beautiful chemistry

The Upcoming

Actors battle with accents and a wooden script in 1960s drama set in a New York Italian immigrant neighbourhood

The Arts Desk

It's an inept production of a mediocre play. The only things likely to provoke tears here are the onions...and possibly boredom

WhatsOnStage

Engaging, if overstuffed family drama that celebrates female fortitude

The Stage

It's a show that's heavy on the stomach

Broadway World

Lisa Blair’s warm production celebrates women finding their way, which is always a joy to watch

A Younger Theatre

An undernourished domestic drama
