WORLD PREMIERE - From producer Javier Diment, director of FrightFest favourite THE ROTTEN LINK, comes a wonderfully acted Argentine chamber piece with chilling power-shifting dynamics taking in everything from WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?, MUMSY, NANNY, SONNY AND GIRLY, HEAVENLY CREATURES and THE WIZARD OF OZ. Jesus and Maria José live together in the grand house that belonged to their recently deceased father. Their playful routine is disrupted when Magdalena, their half sister on their dad’s side, returns from Spain asking for her share of the inheritance. What are they going to do about this interloper into their dangerous folie à deux?
