Following revelatory sell-out seasons at La Mama and Malthouse Theatre Melbourne, A Quarreling Pair returns to its inspirational and intellectual source - New York City.
A Quarreling Pair is a compelling program of three miniature puppet plays inspired by the work of the same name by American avant-garde writer Jane Bowles.
Jane Bowles' A Quarreling Pair is an intense study of the desire to feel both safe and free in our most precious relationships. Charged with Bowles' unique blend of comedy and dark candour this play, is juxtaposed with two new works that elaborate on her ambivalent imagery. Each was written for two sister characters. In Mr Peterson's Milk by Lally Katz, the sisters are fearlessly together, sharing a surreal adventure inside the milkman's brain. And When They Were Good by Cynthia Troup finds the sisters restless, inhabiting an old fairytale.
