The Sad Blisters ()

Produced by

Glass Hammer Productions

Playwright: Andrew Batten
Director: Victoria Shepherd


The Commons Theatre


April 12th, 2019 – April 27th, 2019


Serial monogamist Joanne is getting married – AGAIN. AND she wants her sisters to wear their bridesmaid dresses from her previous weddings. AND Aunt Sara’s been getting free samples from the bar. What could possibly go wrong? The Sad Blisters is loosely based on the family dynamic of the playwright’s wife, Debbie Batten, who has four siblings. One of her sisters, like Joanne in The Sad Blisters, was married three times to men with the same first name. (
