The Grippe Girls


  • Playwright

    Eileen Gibbons 

  • Synopsis

    The ancient and decrepit twins Obstina and Hildegard Grippe are the last remnants of a bygone age, seeing out their final years in the crumbling remains of their once magnificent country pile. They have now agreed to be interviewed about their flamboyant and shameless past, much to the irritation of their faithful and equally ancient retainers, Margaret and Brigid, who are also twins. While one set of twins drags forgotten skeletons and salacious tales out of the closet, the other set is determined to keep those same skeletons and stories carefully hidden away.
