On the morning of their father’s funeral, the Anderson family receives a letter, a catalyst that threatens to ruin the sacred bond between siblings.
Christopher Thomas’ ambitious and tightly performed piece revels in intensity in a way that is almost gleeful and doesn’t let up until the end.
There is powerful storytelling here: worthy of Dracula or Frankenstein. A cohesive, fluid and well-rehearsed ensemble.
| Blood Thicker Than Water
Boiling in my hands
In the eyes of our ghost
Forever engraving deep into the cold skin of a broken memory
As she looked upon us
Already chained to her dearest agony
Blood Thicker Than Water |
