World Premiere #46: from the Central Works Writers Workshop
because counter-terrorism begins at home… A darkly comic intersection of foreign “black ops” and family politics. When the rebel among three odd sisters returns home to reconcile with her estranged mother, cultures clash, sibling rivalries erupt, and bombs start falling. Local playwright Patricia Milton (Reduction in Force) returns to Central Works, bringing us this incisive domestic comedy with a sharp political edge.

“Great dialogue, sharp humor and wrenching emotional roller-coasting lead to a haunting ending…not to be missed.” -J. Motz, Art’s Desire, KWMR-FM
“this absorbing play … is like a gyroscope, spiraling down to the bitter truth, yet whirling out complexities of dialogue and riding on a string of dark humor.” K.Bullock, Berkeley Daily Planet
“Patricia Milton’s stunningly intelligent and politically provocative dramedy, a tightly-crafted play, is a tense family drama with overtones of government abuse as well as family violence.” G. Heymont, MyCulturalLandscape.com
