“God, isn’t it, like staring into a mirror
a mirror or something for the first time and not knowing
I mean, really knowing what you’re looking at.”
In a newly restored house, which resembles their childhood home in almost every respect, two sisters meet after many years apart. One prepares for ‘some kind of occasion’ from which her husband and children are strangely absent. The other bears a cryptic gift from their mother.
Four thousand miles away, in a cabin on the shore of a vast frozen Canadian lake, a mother prepares to return home after informing her daughter of her father’s death.
A new play from the creator of Hold Off the Earth (OVO, 2016), Fugue is a haunting, elliptical portrait of a life unmoored by loss.
