By David Ireland.

Bold and original comic drama about two estranged sisters who come to blows on the first day of a new Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Northern Ireland.

Sandra Richardson is a politician and Member of Northern Ireland's Legislative Assembly. She's about to take her place on the new Commission when her baby sister, Teeni, turns up in a crazed mood and attacks the South African chairperson.

Sandra drags her into an office and, with the press and Stormont's security guards waiting at the other side of the door, the sisters talk about their shared and painful past for the very first time.

David Ireland is currently the Playwright-in-Residence at the Lyric Theatre, Belfast. In 2011 he won the prestigious Meyer Whitworth Award as well as the Stewart Parker Trust Radio Drama Award.
