STLCC-Meramec Theatre Presents “The Two Sisters”

November 13, 2013

The St. Louis Community College-Meramec Theatre presents Dennis M. Corcoran’s “The Two Sisters” Nov. 20-23 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 24 at 2 p.m. in the Meramec Theatre on campus, 11333 Big Bend Road in Kirkwood. 

 

The play, for mature audiences only, is directed by Michelle Rebollo and designed by Darren Thompson.

 

“The Two Sisters” takes place at Her Majesty’s (Women’s) Prison in Armagh, Northern Ireland, during the height of “The Troubles” (1970s and ‘80s). Two communities are at war, with one another housed within its centuries-old walls.  Can these two women, these “two sisters,” bridge generations of bigotry and hate, find humanity in each other and thereby clear a new path to peace?  The work continues today, but its roots were planted here, inside these drab, grey-stone walls, within the heart of the Two Sisters.

 

The Meramec Theatre no longer takes reservations. Admission is free, and seating is open and on a first come basis. For more information, call 314-984-7562.
