ABOUT THE PLAY
Join together! Become one!
Patti and Sam are everything to each other, fulfilling every necessary aspect of each other’s social interactions.
They have created a world of their own; a dark, satisfying fantasy.
Jealous of each other’s affections when directed elsewhere to the point where they cannot function without them, they torture each other with kisses on the hand and romance.
But the outside world begins to interfere. Unwilling to leave the cage they have made for themselves so enters Tai. A person they adopt. The seemingly innocuous Tai soon threatens to contaminate and destroy their perfect, insular paradise.
Rely on each other! Depend on one another! Twins.
ABOUT THE WRITER
Isobel ‘Izzy’ Roberts-Orr is a 20 year old poet/playwright who originally hails from Footscray but has recently moved to the dangerous, botoxed depths of the inner east in order to attend Monash University, where she studies politics, philosophy and law. Izzy was a finalist in the Overload Poetry slam last year and a Muddy River Slam winner and is currently working on a collection of poems entitled “portraits of people on fire.”
Earlier this year, her play ‘NightMinds,’ a fusion of poetry and performance text garnered excellent reviews at the Adelaide Fringe Festival. She is currently working on a new play called ‘Twins’ which is going on for further development as part of the MKA workshop season at MTC Theatre.
ABOUT THE SERIES
Each week, for four weeks, a young female playwright, with the support of a custom artistic team, workshopped a play by day; and then by night we opened the doors to you the public.
You were able to watch the work of making a play in progress. This can be a very private act but we invited you to share in it.
Some nights it was a play. Some nights it was interactive. Some nights even we didn’t know what wouldn’t happen.
You came. Observed. Participated. You were our guest.
Each play was created with entirely different processes; to honor the story being told; as an experiment; as a game; as a way of getting the best new writing.
Maybe you saw it happen.
