The tragicomic play by Birutė Kapustinskaitė tells a story about the communication attempts between a father and his daughter. After five years of disconnection they meet at the hospital emergency. The wish to know about the close relative unavoidably mingles with the grudge and the wish to bite.
The famous TV personality struggling with the addiction and the daughter who represents herself as an adult child of alcoholic and openly shares her experience online seek to find a common language. However, as the abyss between the generations is so great, both sides become the equal opponents – vitriolic, fragile and… just.
The play will make you laugh. Everone of us seeks to be understood and recognized, but sometimes we first need to recognize the other, which is difficult, especially since the “other” looks like you…
During the show the actors come very close to the audience, both physically and emotionally. It is a real time during which the attempts are made to establish the connection, to understand and to find the answers to various problems such as addiction, upbringing and generation gap.
