American twins Racine and Anaia avenge the past of a mother they thought was dead.

Ola Ince directs a play by Aleshea Harris.

Not available. Professional reviews appear to be 4 stars across the board and almost all decide it is a Tarantino / Greek tragedy cross, helped by film techniques like projected captions to get the high body-count story over.

Mother is the titular god, the daughters her avenging angels. The direction may sag at one point but the performances always carry it through and all three ladies are praised. A particularly inventive set also gets a lot of mention, as does the fight director, but it is the dialogue from the writer which gets most lauded.

An experience as much as a play, and one that will stay with you is the verdict.

The monkey advises checking performance times on your tickets and that performances are happening as scheduled, before travelling.
