About The Performance
Cockroaches, is a Southern Gothic dark comedy. It tells the story of three sisters as they deal with the fallout of their mother’s most recent suicide attempt. Momma has been acting strange since returning home from the hospital, causing oldest daughter, Jenny, to come home from college, middle child Charlie, to act out, and youngest child, Sissy, to follow in her mother’s footsteps. As Momma becomes less and less human, the sisters must learn how to care for themselves and each other before it is too late. Cockroaches explores how we create monsters, deal with them, punish them, and learn from them in the wake of disaster.
