My Sister in This House

at The Lir Academy of Dramatic Art

May 24 - 29, 2024

Wendy Kesselman's award-winning psychodrama explores the true story of a murder committed by two sisters who were both maids in the same house in France in the 1930s. The play explores the tensions at work that brought about their motivations to commit such an act. This story also inspired Genet's The Maids.

This production is performed by final year actors at the Lir Academy's conservatoire acting program.

Following a three month affair between two anonymous men, Boyfriends, charts the ups and downs and roundabouts of a modern situationship. As they swing through four million one hundred and ninety one thousand possibilities of what they might mean to one another, through time, sex, Madonna songs, nightclubs, period dramas and calorie counting, Boyfriends asks us to ponder on that age old question: what the f*ck is romance anyway?

“An incredibly smart piece from Springheel Productions and an incredibly talented writer and actor. Larney is without a doubt one to watch. Not a single moment is wasted in this show and you shouldn’t waste a moment in booking a ticket before this run finishes.”
