A story about the complexity of human relationships in which the Irish playwright offers us a lesson of how to understand and accept life. This piece is performed by a cast which brings together the best of the Catalan theatre scene.

One drop of love and another of poison. It does not matter whether we are talking about parents and children, or partners or friends... the relationships that we, as humans, establish between us are rarely clear and simple. We can see this by examining ourselves or maybe by going to the theatre to spend a sunny afternoon in a house in Donegal, Ireland. Here, Tom, a famous writer and Daisy, an old pianist who these days is a wife who is constantly worried about the bad shape her family finances are in, are paid a visit by a north American literary agent. Maybe this visitor could supply them the money they need, but maybe the price the agent asks in return will be too high a price to pay for the couple. What will they answer him? Whilst they mull it over, Tom and Daisy receive another visit, this time from her parents, an elderly couple who are in full mid-life crisis mode, and a family friend with his pockets full of money.

Sílvia Munt, makes an old personal project come true and takes the play of an Irish author, best known here in Catalunya for plays such as Afterplay (seen in 2013), Traslations (2014) y Dansa d'agost (2016), to the stage. The director has a luxury cast at her disposal led by Emma Vilarasau and David Selvas among other great names of our scene.
