The story of two sisters who make different choices in life feature in Daughterhood at the Fringe.
One sister stayed at home to care for their dad, the other set out to ‘make a difference’. Reunited under their childhood roof, Pauline and Rachel unearth more than the 10 years between them.
It’s a huge gap. Almost insurmountable. And each is determined to let the other know exactly who has done things right.
Daughterhood is a beautiful, ferocious play about the bonds that tie us, and how we sometimes need to break them.
