Father's Prize Poland China exposes the madness of addicitons, jealousies, and strange bonds between rivaling sisters. The psycho-farce takes place in the rural Southern kitchen of the Pulaski farmhouse and centers around the two Pulaski sisters: Pat, a wildly repressed fundamentalist; and Judy, a hard-drinking go-go dancer. The two sisters play cat and mouse as they entangle each other in the murder of the local Don Juan, a waitress named Flo who looks a lot like their dead mother, their father's disappearance, and the slaying of his prized hog.
"A comedy about crimes of the swine...Sergent writes with a dark whimsy that suggests one of Beth Henley's eccentric families gone haywire." - Richard Dodds, Theatre critic of Lagniapppe
Father's Prize Poland China was first presented atThe John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts' American College Theater Festival in Washington, DC, on April 17, 1995.
