MinusOneSister (Anna Barnes) is Sophocles Electra furiously wrenched into the present and told from the point of view of the teenagers. Eternal obsessions mingle with the obsessions of our times, bloodshed goes hand in hand with Bacardi Breezers and Facebook, and a chilling portrait emerges of a family irreversibly shattered by grief and guilt. Shit (Patricia Cornelius) takes us into the world of three womenBilly, Bobby and Samthree women from a violent, impoverished underclass who have landed in prison together after a vicious incident.
