The Siblings Play at the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater – Community Partner

March 8th 2020 & March 26th 2020 | New York, NY

Healing TREE Founder Marissa Ghavami will be leading a Community Conversation after the March 8th and March 26th performances. Use code HT25SIBLINGS for $25 tickets (typically $45-$60). The Siblings Play delves deep into the psyche of a teenage girl and her two brothers left to raise each other in their parents’ absence. The play looks at the ways these three teenagers protect, love, fight, and diminish in the wake of their family history and the complexity of growing up with parents who are too young to be parents in the first place. In The Siblings Play, Santiago gives voice to characters rarely seen on the stage with theatricality, poignancy, humor, and empathy.
