YOU IN YOUR SMALL CORNER by Steve Dimmer

£6.00

After the break-up of her marriage CHRISTINE has been obliged to return home to live with her mother MON. MON is a manipulative woman who has a very low opinion of her daughter. Over time, CHRISTINE’s mind-set changes and she becomes as devious as her mother, undermining her, confusing her, making her doubt herself and even drugging her into submission. The play deals with the little-explored issue of elder abuse and asks how it can happen that parental/child love can turn over time into hate and even worse. It explores the debts some parents feel their children owe them and how that debt is never considered repaid. It also examines the unassailable self-importance that people develop when their actions aren’t challenged.
