One sister stayed at home to care for Dad. The other set out to “make a difference”.
Reunited under their childhood roof, Pauline and Rachel unearth more than the 10 years between them.
It’s a huge gap. Almost insurmountable. And each is determined to let the other know exactly who has done things right.
DAUGHTERHOOD is a beautiful, ferocious play about the bonds that tie us, and how we sometimes need to break them.
