MY LITTLE SISTER
a very dark comedy
After a successful reading at the Thomas Center Spanish Court, in Gainesville, Florida, the workshop production of My Little Sister – a very dark comedy, a play by Carlos Francisco Asse, comes to life in the Second Stage of The Hippodrome Theatre, for two nights only.
My Little Sister is a slice of life in the story of Anita and Nena, sisters that still live together at the age of 85 and 82 years old. It is told in three scenes and one epilogue; when Anita, 85, has spent eight long years being a caregiver to her younger sister, Nena, 82, after she suffered a mild stroke. We are witness to their daily routine, which is both funny and touching as their conflicts come to the fore with semi-tragic consequences.
Carlos Francisco Asse, the author of the piece, also takes the reins as its director with the help of Mimi Carr and Jan Cohen creating the roles of Anita and Nena, respectively. Lighting by Robert P. Robins; costumes by Marilyn Wall; properties by Lorelei Esser; sound by Essa Solrac, and stage management by Sabrina Jones.
Dates: March 13, 20 at 7:00 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased for $9.
