Foundry Festival: Cheetah Sisters
“There's a tentative moment as adults when you realise you're no longer held together as siblings. You're just people and you have to meet each other again as people.”
When Susie first met her sister, she was blue and angry. Abandoned outside an orphanage in China, she had a life-threatening heart condition and was afraid of strangers.
Mixing storytelling with documentary theatre, this striking new autobiographical piece explores the conflict of national and personal identity involved in interracial adoption, alongside the natural ups and downs of sisterhood.

Sillett gives a warts and all exposition of the fierce and often destructive love between sisters, and the transitory nature of childhood and family
