Meet My Sister! is the final Theatre NorthWest production of the 2018/19 season and this World Premiere promises to be hysterical. In this new comedy sisters Stella and Blanche, one from northern BC and the other from northern Ontario, try to get their mom to come out of her locked home, which has been sold, so she can move to a senior’s residence she is supposed to be moving into that day. The sisters battle the house and each other before the surprise twist ending that will keep you laughing for days.
