Sister Cities is about four estranged sisters, whose reunion weekend is inextricably flipped 180 degrees with the sudden death of their mother. Written by internationally known playwright and author, Colette Freedman, this is the Chicago Premiere of the show, which has played all over the world.
The four sisters will be played by Nicole Fabbri, Katlynn Yost, Anna Donnell, and Norma Chacon with the Rainee Denham as their mother. It will be directed by Ashley Neal.
Sister Cities is a dark comedy that features beautifully crafted roles for five women. It will have you re-thinking what it means to be family, and what the true value of life, choice, and freedom are for you.
