Acclaimed dramatist and Tony Award-winner Brian Friel presents this compelling, thought-provoking play, already an international success. In an isolated home in the county of Donegal, novelist Tom Connolly and his alcoholic wife Daisy have people over for dinner: David Knight, a visiting scholar appraising Tom's papers; Garret Fitzmaurice, a commercially successful writer with a disastrous marriage; and Daisy's strange father and angry, arthritic mother. During the meal, the group's disappointments and desires simmer and then boil over in humiliation and resentment. Give Me Your Answer, Do! is a heartbreaking comedy that questions the meaning of success while exploring the tragic connection between professional and personal grief. 84 pages.
