Reviews

WENDY KESSELMAN'S My Sister in This House begins as a cool, black satire of provincial bourgeois life, turns into a macabre tale of incestuous homosexual love and ends with an explosion of Grand Guignol violence. If this play sounds discomforting, it is - and it means to be. Miss Kesselman's subject is repression -social, sexual, religious and political - and the havoc it wreaks on its victims. The author's feelings run so strong that she'll burn down the theater if that's what it takes to get the audience to see her point of view.[11]
