Three siblings. A kitchen. A box full of cassette tapes left behind by their mother. On them, only titles - one for every chapter of her life. Together, the siblings engage in a ritual game of make-believe. As they uncover the reality behind their mother's veneer, an absurd and dystopian world emerges, where kitchen appliances become people and the perfect dysfunctional family is resurrected. Will they get out of the kitchen, or is it all too much too late?
A form-pushing new play by Nadia Cavelle, Subject Mater is a loosely autobiographical and daringly imaginative journey into the mother/child relationship and what it takes to break free.
