Based on a true story that took place in France in the 1930s, My Sister in this House is a dark tale of power, class, religion and social systems and its effect on a household of women. Madame Danzard and her daughter Isabelle employ Christine and her sister Léa, recently reunited after their life in a local orphanage. As time passes, we witness how the demanding atmosphere of servitude, obedience and conformity frays at the edges of their relationships and devolves into intense resentment between the women and the structures that oppress them.

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