My Vicious Angel is a one act-play set in a kind of haunted hospital. Pearl is a trapeze artist who has fallen and broken her spine; Merle her dead twin sister who died in a fire. Through Merle's at first unwelcome visitations, Pearl is lured back into their sad history via role playing (Mum, Dad, and Oscar the parrot are hilariously invoked) and through music (Mum's tangos, Dad's beloved sea shanties). The twins have a dense private language. Themes include memory, lies, trauma, flight and falling and incomplete grieving. Performance also requires 2 musicians.
