The Basin Theatre Group presents

5 Oct 2023 to 15 Oct 2023

It’s 1988, a time before mobile phones, texting & cheap long-distance calls.

The Walker sisters' mother has eaten some bad tuna and been taken to hospital.  Again.  When oldest sister Peggy calls to inform her five sisters a series of phone calls ensues.  Second eldest Aneece is too busy being bitter at their mother to talk to Peggy, Audrey prefers to put Huckle, her ventriloquist dummy, on the phone instead of speaking to her sister and Sherry has changed her name to Dust & is more interested in abstract poetry with her current lover than discussing their mother's various ailments.   Roseanne's life is falling apart, yet she still seems to come second to her husband's midlife crisis and youngest sister Paige is having romantic troubles, all of which take precedence over their mother's latest drama.  All in all Peggy doesn't have much luck gaining sympathy for Mama. 

A series of 45 phone calls over one autumn weekend reveals cracks in the foundation of the Walker family.  Sisterly bonds are tested, loves are lost and found and old wounds are reopened in this heartfelt comedy about family, trauma and love!

An Amateur Production By Arrangement with ORiGiNTM Theatrical, on behalf of RIGHTS HOLDER
