idly bent theatre company


blood is thick. paint is thicker.

"Imagine how famous you'd be if you were dead." Charlie, an artist toiling in obscurity, paints her masterpiece -- a fake suicide. Her sister Viva acts as her lifeline, the only thread between Charlie and the breathing world. But as Charlie's fame soars on the wings of her sister, the chains of their love begin to rust and crack, revealing dark corners in their search for life after "death." In Art House, Australian playwright Rachael Coopes paints a dark sky with two bright stars, a tense and poignant duet on love and loss, truth and lies, and, of course, art.
