Grab your sisters, your cousins and BFF for a great girl's night out during the Auckland Fringe 2013, as Sisterly Love performs at Q Theatre's Vault from February 20th!

Borrowed shoes and not return them? Returned your favourite dress with stains? Talked you into that haircut? Would you hide your grandmother's wedding dress from your sister – so she couldn't wear it on her wedding day?

Meet Charlene, Karen, Jacqueline, Bernie and their mother. On her wedding day, Charlene refuses to get married until one of her sisters coughs up the good luck wedding dress.

Sisterly Love stars the latest up and coming raw talent in Auckland. The early show (6:30 pm) stars Kat Glass fresh from the independent Irish film The Dying Eye, The Basement in Bucket Boy and Love is a Street Fight, Short + Sweet Festival, Tempo Festival, Auckland Fringe and Read Raw.

The late show (8:00pm) stars Ashton Brown recently seen in Meat at Q theatre, at the Basement in Bucket Boy and Love is a Street Fight; Short + Sweet Festival, performed on tour with the theatre company Driving Drama and appeared on Shortland Street.

M.E. Macdonald's plays have been produced in Australia and New Zealand including The Getaway, Disconnected, Four Stages of Passion, Motel Nights and Sociopaths don't use commas. She is a member of the Auckland Playwrights Collective and Read Raw.

We love and we hate our sisters but we forgive…… eventually!

Late night Friday and Saturday come dressed as a bridesmaid!
