MinusOneSister at Griffin Theatre

Posted by Sas Lyon

MinusOneSister by Anna Barnes presented by Griffin Theatre, Canberra.

A father sacrifices the life of his eldest daughter for the common good – having her snatched away during a TV ad break. It’s the kind of thing that can really mess up a family. Mother turns against father. Son turns against mother. Sister turns against sister. Maybe you’ve heard the myth, but not like this.

MinusOneSister is Sophocles’ Electra furiously wrenched into the present and told from the point of view of the teenagers. Eternal obsessions mingle with the obsessions of our times, bloodshed goes hand in hand with Bacardi Breezers and Facebook, and a chilling portrait emerges of a family irreversibly shattered by grief and guilt.

A piercing new play with ancient roots, MinusOneSister won Anna Barnes the Patrick White Playwrights’ Award in 2013. It will be realised in all its chilling glory by Luke Rogers.
