La Mama Theatre presents a VIMH production

my sister feather
Written and Directed by Olivia Satchell

“Why are you older than me?”
“You needed more time Egg. You’re more precious than me.”

An empty women’s prison visiting centre.
Egg is brought in to wait.
Tilly arrives.
She’s been given special permission to see Egg.
Their mother has died.
She disappeared during a game of hide-and-seek when they were little girls.
They’re middle-aged now and Tilly has received two letters from her.
One for each of them.

The second play in a trilogy of work by Olivia Satchell about the relationship between grief, memory, and the female body, my sister feather shifts between a stark prison centre and the shared childhood of two women to investigate trauma and sisterhood.

Shortlisted for both the 2017 Rodney Seaborn Playwrights’ Award and the 2018 Max Afford Playwrights’ Award this tale of survival, love, and loss by one of Melbourne’s most exciting new playwrights is not to be missed!

Headed by Olivia Satchell, the voice in my hands (VIMH) is a Melbourne-based independent theatre company producing bold original new work that risks failure in order to raise the creative and socio-political horizon of expectation. VIMH is committed to the Melbourne theatre community by providing ongoing development opportunities for new writing and performance.
