Who is more trustworthy than a sister?
Sex, lies and black comedy permeate this modern reworking of Ovid’s myth of Tereus, Procne and Philomela from the Metamorphoses, blending mythological symbolism and contemporary dialogue.
After years of estrangement, married couple Marisa and Dan welcome Marisa’s sister Edie into their home. Their marriage, already marred by interference from Marisa’s meddling best friend, is put to the test. Struggling to settle into the fractured household, Edie finds solace in her new lover Nathan. But as Dan’s attraction to Edie develops, a dark history between the two sisters begins to emerge…
"The impressive cast deliver a refreshingly honest, emotive and at times mysterious play…Feathers thrillingly captures the dark twisted impact of how one’s tormented past can infiltrate the present.”
“From the Edinburgh festival 2010, by the promising Eliza Power…a perfect union between dance and drama, which show’s true sensuality.”
