RUN SISTER SUN by Chloë Moss
Sheffield Theatres 27 February – 21 March
Soho Theatre 25 March – 2 May
'You can’t pick your family but if you could I’d still pick you.’
Sisters Connie and Ursula were once everything to each other. Years on they’re almost strangers. When a family bombshell is dropped, Connie is forced to retrace forty years of sisterhood and confront a web of painful secrets and conflicting loyalties. Spanning four decades, nurture competes with nature as the pair navigate their unbreakable bond, united by the same beginning but headed in different directions.
Award-winning playwright Chloë Moss’ new play is a witty and heartfelt story of family, class and dependence, asking what it really means to belong to someone.
Directed by Charlotte Bennett, Joint Artistic Director of Paines Plough.
