Julie and Ruby are estranged sisters coming to terms with the death of their domineering mother Iris, who still manages to control their lives from beyond the grave.
On the night after the funeral, Julie gets off with crime scene cleaner Gerry. Maybe that’ll help? It doesn’t.
Awarded four stars by The Guardian upon its premiere at Newcastle’s Live Theatre in 2016 and described by The Stage as a “fierce but often comic play … bruising yet touching”, Iris looks at how we try to cope with grief.
Local writer Alison Carr’s trademark quirky wit turns a claustrophobically macabre scenario into a laugh-out-loud evening of dark humour, broken mirrors and strange bequests.
This amateur production of Iris is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
