Su-Lin’s mother, Molly, considers herself a collector. To her, everything has a story, and a place in her home. When Su-Lin’s American boyfriend asks to visit, this sets mother and daughter on a collision course.
Why does Molly feel the need to surround herself with all of her belongings? What does Su-Lin learn when she digs through things that she’s usually forbidden to touch? And can the relationship between Molly and Su-Lin survive coming face-to-face with their deepest, darkest secrets?
Humorous and heart-breaking, Mine – like the family at its heart – looks in dark, forgotten places to find moments of light and love.
Mine is a work-in-progress based on The Weight of Emptiness, which was staged as part of Playground Entertainment’s State of Mind (a production showcase of four plays) that ran from 26 to 29 October 2016 at The Arts House at The Old Parliament.
