        • What is it?: Matriarch Steingerdur, who is in her seventies, has invited her two daughters and son in law around for waffles to announce a decision that will leave astound her family. "Initially, I was guided by three ideas.", says the writer about the play. "Firstly, to write a multi-layered role for a mature actress and I decided that this character would hold all the threads and make audacious plans. Secondly, I wanted to create a dance theatre piece and, thirdly, that there would be no secondary roles in the play."
