In Small Doses

This is a true story

A mother flies in to visit her daughter for her 30th birthday. She brings with her a large suitcase with no return ticket home. Unbeknownst to her daughter, The Mother is here to stay ... indefinitely.

"Surprise!"

Mother has broken up with Husband No. 3 and now has nowhere else to live. 

If only this were a suprise. Fast to detect her mother's alterior motives, The Daughter attempts to find a polite way to make her mother leave. Turns out ... there isn't one. 

In Small Doses is a dark comedy about family relations made all the more complex as unique cultural values come into play. Performed by a real mother and daughter, the play maps a series of escalating arguments, each one more thrilling then the last ... for, isn't 'arguing' a type of love-language?
