AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A cursed house. A charred man. A reckoning.

'After her twin’s sudden disappearance, Ana falls into a dark alternate world of riddles and dreams. The dead keep playing out the past, the Queen of Eternal Grief is working on a new cabaret number, and two tricksters lead a tribe of lost children.

'If she ever wants to bring her sister home, Ana must recognise her fate and claim an inheritance she never imagined was hers. How far would you go to save your own blood?

'A mix of opera-noir, cabaret and naturalistic drama, Twin is a mythic weighing of the past against the present. Featuring a large chorus ensemble from regional Australia and multiple writers, this is the first instalment of Arthur’s multi episode exploration of the Australian psyche.' (Production summary)
