The  Donahue Sisters by Geraldine Aron

The attic of the family home, once a playroom, is where the three sisters gather, awaiting the death of their father. They reminisce, laughing and bickering long into the night. We learn of each sister’s aspirations and disappointments as their closeness and their rivalries unfold. Eventually they can no longer resist and are compelled to re-create a sinister ritual of a secret, shared incident from their childhood. Enacting the ritual seems to bring the women expiation and a sense of tenuous peace. Remaining is theuneasy prospect of the past repeating itself. By turns funny and darkly mysterious, this inventive play hints that the ancient blood gods of Druidic Ireland may still be felt stirring below the surface of daily life.
