For Deidra and Janice, Mom's dead and it's a great day.  There's going to be a celebration, and hopefully, nothing will go flying out the window - including one of them.  A viciously comic and tense fifteen-year reunion between two sisters on the day of their mother's unforgettable death.  (Nominated for Edmonton's Elizabeth Sterling Haynes Award for Outstanding Play)

"When it comes to Northern Light Theatre's mandate of dark and provocative productions that challenge audiences, Sister Sister delivers and satisfies."

-Vue Weekly, Edmonton, Alberta, CA


"Sister Sister by American writer Barbara Blumenthal-Ehrlich - another way off-centre discovery by artistic director Trevor Schmidt." 

-Edmonton Journal


"Slowly, in dramatic fits and starts with many power shifts and startling surprises, their torturous stories begin to reveal themselves...The play takes some ingenious and surprising turns from there."

-Gig City
