The Sister is a new play by Eric Meyer, directed by Jess Chayes, at The Brick Theater in Brooklyn, NY Feb 16th to19th; 24th to 26th.
Using language, light, shadow, and the animal aspects of human nature, The Sister tells the story of Colleen, a woman who has always played the role of The Sister in her family; the one who takes the blame and abuse—and must respond with gratitude. But when Terry the neighbor recognizes her true beauty and power, will she find a life of love, or lose her fragile sense of identity?
The Sister marks the first collaboration between emerging playwright Eric Meyer (Not Winehouse, The Bowery Poetry Club; The Truck Project's 2010 Artist in Transit) and director Jess Chayes of The Assembly (The Three Sisters, The Red Room; Clementine and the Cyber Ducks, The Ontological Theater).
