The lies and lottery of four sisters

Winning the lottery often means not having anything to worry about in life, but for Henriette (Uta Patzina) in the new play “Schwestern” (Sisters) from the Neue Bühne Oberursel the sudden windfall is a problem.  See had promised her sister Mathilde (Anna Altheim) not to play the lottery any more, and all of a sudden she is left with having to explain where all of the money came from, without Sister Notburga (Gerlinda Haas-Schmidt) from the local convent finding out an wanting a donation.  And she doesn’t want the sisters’ domestic employee Frau Bastelhuber (Margit Altheim) finding out about it either.

Luckily Henriette can count of the support of her other sisters Irene (Barbara Semeras) and Charlotte (Gabriele Schweickhardt), the latter being a solicitor who comes up with a plan to explain the money as being an inheritance from long-forgotten relatives – a useful solution considering that Henriette’s daughter Christine (Kerstin Grunwald) already has plans for part of the money and Henritte’s and Mathilde’s house needs urgent repairs done to it.
