Two sisters- Edia and Patricia – live together in Edita’s house. Edia is celebrity, renown humanitarian, bud today she is disabled, without amputated legs. Patricia takes care of here. Edita is difficult and selfish. Vili- Patricia’s husband- lives with them and try to move out. He finds the job, but Edita- who doesn’t want them to move- uses her influence to prevent that. Patricia- previously on the sister’s side- turns against her and poisons her.
Play won a Marin Držić Award for best Croatia drama in 2000.
Poisoner is specific text within Croatian drama literature. It’s kind of theatrical screenplay with neat and rational plot, well made and immensely accurate.
Poisoner questions relations in the family on those dangerous borderlines where evil meets good, and love for those closest to you evolves into outlines of crime.
Average show based on a very weak text.
