A light comedy about the friendship formed between two women from very different backgrounds. It is concerned with two alcoholics, both women, whose plight has landed them in a hospital ward where they are fighting their addiction with medical concern, mostly good-natured abuse - and the odd drop of secreted gin. They are from two very different cultures - one is Irish, the other Aboriginal - and the only bond they have is a shared experience of what drink can do.
''Sistergirl', a play which is a beguiling mix of bawdy humour and poignant drama, focuses on two spirited elderly women, one of Aboriginal descent and the other Irish sharing a hospital ward. It is the first play by celebrated Aboriginal writer and painter, Sally Morgan, author of the best-selling novel, 'My Place'.'
