All My Sleep and Waking
By Mary Rachel Brown
La Mama, until July 20, 2008
Reviewer: Kate Herbert
Mary Rachel Brown’s intense, often funny play about three siblings coping with their dying father, is unusual, well written and capably performed.
The older, control freak sister (Andrea Close) and her anxious, compulsive brother (Andrew Gray) recall a negligent, drunken father.
However, the youngest daughter (Sharon Davies), who nurses him to his death, knew him as a kinder, sober dad.
