The costuming, a simple set put to great use with the projection.
What I didn't like
In my opinion, nothing
My overall impression
The trope of sisters is a familiar one, and don’t let the fact that this one is based in New Zealand from early last century make you think it isn’t relevant because it is to sisters everywhere. When you grow up so close together and your lives take a divergent path. Director Leah Patterson has chosen to use an interesting tool to portray the women in their youth and then their later years…a clothesline with a sheet as projection screen and footage of the older women. It is beautifully done, and playwright Norelle Scotts interpretation of Stevan Eldred-Grigg’s book Oracles and Miracles is a beautiful transition from book to stage. Amy Waller’s ‘Fag’ brilliantly captures the small town snobbery that results from new money, while I wasn’t surprised to discover later that Siobhan Marshall who plays Fag’s sister Ginnie is in reality married to her stage husband Millen Baird (Jaz), their timing and relationship was perfect. Director Patterson guides the cast beautifully through this story over several decades, it is a warm and beautiful tale that had the audience laughing out loud in parts.
