The Derelict Sisters

Longlisted for the Theatre 503 International Playwright's Award 2020


I feel like we’ve been shifted sideways. Here but not. Slid invisibly out from somewhere to somewhere else. Slipped out of the loop. The gears no longer engaged. Like freewheeling.”



Evelyn and Constance are two elderly sisters quietly going about their own lives when suddenly, on one fateful afternoon, two worlds collide. Yet, if the truth were known they have always been slightly out of sync both with each other and the world. ‘The Derelict Sisters’ is a play that explores what we know, what we don’t know and what we don’t even know we don’t know.


Fundamentally the play looks to address the existential question of life and death and our significance, if any, in the wider scheme of things.
