The Josephine Knot

Meg Braem

Playwrights Canada Press

Josephine avoids the obvious trappings of family feuds and instead sifts through the emotional debris resulting when a family’s matriarch finally falls.” —Monday Magazine

“This one-act drama—which has its darkly funny moments—is curious and slightly macabre… Braem’s bold writing bodes well for her career—as does her sensitivity to the complex, often contradictory way in which people relate to one another.” —Adrian Chamberlain, Times Colonist

Winner of the Playwrights Theatre Centre’s THE NEWS Play Competition

After Samantha’s baba dies, her fractured family is summoned to pick through the house full of belongings and trash, leaving taped notes on whatever they want to take. Between old napkins, a closet full of ketchup packets, and a freezer full of rotting meat are gems like a grandfather clock and plastic deer statuettes that hold more sentiment. While her father David sifts through his own memories, all Samantha wants is to find a simple object that could represent her place in the family. When other family members arrive, tug of wars and passive-aggressive conversations commence. In a house full of junk and sadness, it comes down to Samantha and David to find a new way to fit together.
