Based on the Caine prize-winning short story from Mary Watson’s collection called Moss, this is a performance work about families and the secrets that they hide.
Set in Redhill, Cape Town, before the forced removals, the audience takes a look behind ‘closed doors’ and uncover one family’s secrets. All of the characters strive to live by their own unique versions of morality but their reliance and desperate need for each other complicates matters. Evelyn, a young girl desperate for her mother’s attention and time, finds herself idolizing her aunt Jessica and desperate to please her father, Stephen. Stephen and Jessica try to comfort Evelyn but the lines get crossed and the sins start to boil over.
