Inkwell's World Premiere SISTERS THREE Opens 12/14
Inkwell's World Premiere "Sisters Three" opens December 14th at 8pm
A Finalist for The Source Festival and a Semi-finalist for The Bay Area Playwrights Foundation, SISTERS THREE lands its World Premiere production with Inkwell Theater producing in Los Angeles at the VS. Theatre.
An off-center dramedy about family, social media, fame, and the holidays, Sisters Three pays homage to the Brontë sisters, and their brother Patrick. After a family tragedy, Charlotte has dropped out of society and joined a no-technology commune on Gondol Island. EJ and Anne are building a canoe to rescue her. As individual secrets and desires are becoming more apparent, it is threatening to tear the sisters apart.
"I am committed to giving voice to female protagonists, so I always start with female leads...or rather, the female leads start with me," says writer Jami Brandli. "This play was inspired by the Bronte sisters, all novelists and poets. Though it's not a biography, the fascinating sibling dynamic includes their brother Patrick, who was a painter, in a modern retelling of a complicated family of artists and big thinkers now living in a society that seems to place more value on the veneer of a perfect Instagram post rather than appreciating the beautiful complexities of reality."
Annie McVey directs a cast which includes Robyn Cohen as Charlotte (The Exonerated opposite Jeff Goldblum, west coast premiere of Neil LaBute's The Shape of Things/The Laguna Playhouse, No Way Around but Through/The Falcon Theatre starring Melanie Griffith, Rigoletto/The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion), Dana DeRuyck as EJ (Hole in the Sky with Circle X Theatre, member Sacred Fools where she played Prushka in the LA premiere of A Gulag Mouse; and appeared in Mr. Burns a Post-Electric Play and The Magic Bullet Theory), and Kara Hume (member of the Road Theatre, she appeared in Jami Brandi's Through the Eye of a Needle, and The Other Place by Sharr White).
Sisters Three opens at 8pm on Friday, December 14th and runs at 8pm Fridays and Saturdays, 2pm, Sundays (added performances at 8pm on Thursdays 12/20 & 12/27 and Mondays 1/7 & 1/14) through January 20, 2019.
