A Quarrelling Pair, 2008

'A Quarrelling Pair' is an adaptation of a play by Jane Bowles which I made with Phoebe Blatton. The play, originally written in 1946 for two puppets, is an intense study of two sisters, who sit in separate rooms and quarrel endlessly about trivial tasks, the futility of life, and their inextricable bond. Phoebe and I wanted to interpret, align and examine the domestic idiosyncrasy of this female relationship and were interested in creating a piece that could represent the way we understood its existentialist weight yet sardonic wit.
