Give Me Your Answer Do by Brian Friel

16-20 November, ____.

The play is set in the home of the impoverished Irish novelist, Tom Connolly, and his wife, Daisy, whose lives are overshadowed by their permanently hospitalized daughter. They are visited by Daisy’s parents and by the successful novelist, Garret Fitzgerald, and his wife, GrĂ¡inne. The question at the heart of the play is: Will Connolly sell his manuscripts to a Texas university (as Fitzgerald has just done) and thus acquire some much-needed money. This is a story of people inextricably bound together and of the loves and hates that proximity generates.
