WOMAN and MAN have been a couple for thirty years. Today, she returns home very disturbed. She has spoken with her mother and understood that her own husband has invited her to live with them. WOMAN, completely upset, demands explanations from MAN, a man who seems busy and preoccupied searching for his green tie. Moreover, he wants her to take off her pajamas and put on the floral dress. They need to leave, but nothing seems to be in its place. The house is in disarray and everything is strange, like in a dream. She struggles to return to normalcy, but feels like she’s sinking underground and the only hand willing to help her is her mother’s. WOMAN refuses for it to be this way. She’d rather live underground as a fat-skinned mole.

Throughout the story, comic, absurd, or surreal situations will unfold in a broken narrative that oscillates between the characters’ past, present, or future. WOMAN will have to battle her ghosts, evoking her relationship with her mother, hinting at childhood fears and past pains. Meanwhile, the presence of the MOTHER will add an absurd and even magical touch to this tragicomedy that speaks about motherhood, caregiving, and love.

Performance in Basque.
