Oscar Wilde once wrote, of his most famous play ‘It is exquisitely trivial, a delicate bubble of fancy, and it has its philosophy … that we should treat all the trivial things of life seriously, and all the serious things in life with sincere and studied triviality.’
What if Wilde had written his most famous play in a matriarchal society?
Jacklyn has a very useful fictional wicked sister called Austere, as well as a very mischievous real friend called Penelope. When Penelope arrives at Jacklyn’s country house claiming to be Austere, only a black handbag and an ageing governor can provide the solution to the ensuing hullabaloo.
THE MOON CHILDREN
“Love is a curse the Omniscient gave us and it’s the most beauitful thing he created.
We are the Moon Children
We yearn to be whole again. Yet we’re waiting for our starting line”
