The irony of the title grows ever clearer as you watch this riveting play, written and performed by Russell Barr. The “sisterhood” is that of Glasgow’s transvestites. He casually introduces us to their bitterly funny, sordid, underground society.
From The Glasgow Herald review, “Barr is flying without a safety net, exposing old wounds with candour.”
The miracle of the play is that you are simultaneously shocked, yet bound, by this desperate, tragic figure.

Russell Barr’s SISTERS returned to New York for a 3 week run in 2005. His second play was presented in London in 2006 and his newest opened in London in October, 2007.
In 2008, Russell returned to New York performing SISTERS, for its third New York run, this time directed by Michael Imperioli. He startled audiences again, and received laudatory reviews in the NY Times, among other publications.
