Jo Harper's new play that explores the fragility of female relationships.
The old house by the sea is supposed to be a peaceful new start for Liv and Kate as they move out of the city to raise their newborn baby. But songwriter Liv is too distracted to write new songs, and Kate, who has just given birth, needs to return to work. And despite wanting to distance herself from her bossy older sibling, Liv's sister Jenny finds herself returning to the beach house time & again.
Jo Harper’s play explores the complicated parts of parenthood, the friction between two sisters, and the tenacity of love.
“The acting is faultless...what proves frustrating is that Harper's script feels as though it's one draft away from being a really good play...it is refreshing to encounter a female-led story that isn't afraid to tackle the sourness at the heart of some families. A mixed bag maybe, but worth seeing.”
“With the destruction of such close romantic and familial relationships at stake, and a young baby’s future with its parents unclear, it should feel perilous. Rather, I left empty and completely untouched.”
