In Gail Louw’s Two Sisters, audiences meet sisters Rika and Edith, who are very close but about to discover a shocking truth about their past. Can they adapt or will they now, after seventy years, become strangers?

Set on a kibbutz in Israel in 1996, reveals the politics, rivalry, sweetness, humour and sadness inextricably entwining the sisters’ lives. It explores sibling relationships and their often wildly differing perceptions of past events.

It confronts the realities of growing old; maintaining or relinquishing independence, the need for others, and complex emotions including selfishness, guilt and regret. 

Writing for Broadway World, reviewer Shari Barrett said of the play’s 2016 US debut that Gail Louw had written “…an exquisite play”.
