Sometimes I Laugh Like My Sister

Sometimes I Laugh Like My Sister
....a little show about death and other taboos..... Since her big sister, BBC journalist Kate Peyton, was murdered in Somalia, Rebecca has had rather a strange time. She welcomes us to her world in a passionately political, sharply comical and painfully personal account of life after Kate. Crafting a moving and often comic tapestry of private moments from a public tragedy, Rebecca tells her own story of a courageous journalist and a loving big sister, whom she misses.

Written by Rebecca Peyton And Martin M. Bartelt
