After surviving a car crash, Lily finds herself pushing thirty and sitting on her estranged sister Paige’s couch in country Victoria. As Lily comes to terms with the physical and emotional consequences of her accident, Paige is working hard to ignore the progression of her Multiple Sclerosis symptoms. 

The siblings’ close proximity unearths a lifetime of secrets and resentments. As they trade stories and barbs over endless cups of tea and games of UNO, the specter of their sister Maddie, and her tragic, premature death looms over them as they reckon with just how little, and how much they know about each other.
Rachel Edmonds’ taut, thrilling debut play deftly explores the raw intimacy of sibling relationships and the ways they expose a person’s capacity for intense love and cruelty.
