By Beth Henley. Roy Edinger Theatre (WA). Director: Susan Lynch. May 6 – 21, 2011.
In her director’s notes, Melville Theatre’s Susan Lynch discusses that this is a difficult play to pin down to a single genre, eventually describing it as a good story. Indeed, with her cast, she does a good job of storytelling.
Set in a languid Mississippi fall, the story was relayed at Southern pace at times, but remained intriguing.
Believable sisters were very nicely played by Elethea Sartorelli as ‘old maid’ eldest sister Lenny, Tanya McCall as ‘prodigal sister’ Meg and Bianca Kenna as wayward youngest sibling Babe.
