Dramaturg Emily Dedakis blogs about Grievances and Whirligigs:
"Grievances & Whirligigs, written by Donna Latham (USA) and directed by Claire Lamont, kicked off the series last month. It's a jolting and exuberant spill of language, telling the sharp & startling story of the oldest daughter of abusive parents and her many coping mechanisms. Donna was totally, joyfully invested in the revision process - a dedicated and professional collaborator."

Like love, empathy, and compassion, violence begins at home. When Mary Claire visits her parents after a lengthy absence, she carries her grievances home. Attempted murder, bottled emotions, and toxic chilli boil to the surface when Mary Claire’s abusive father threatens her daughter. First in the 2013 Biscuit Tin Readings is Grievances & Whirligigs by USA born Donna Latham, directed by Claire Lamont. Latham’s Grievances & Whirligigs provides a heart-rending insight into America and family-life.
