About the play: Come back tomorrow is a comedy of entanglement in which all the characters are immersed in different love situations: Manolo is fascinated by Pepa, who serves in the same house in which he has been hired as waiter and chauffeur. Pepa is tempted by Manolo and Antolín, the latter the master of the house and newly married to Rita. Rita is delighted with the voice of Manolo and Antolín likes to look at Pepa. The succession of visual gags, the comic misunderstandings produced in the action and the humorous situations derived from the absurd dialogues abound (each character speaks of his own, ignoring what the other says) and all this in simple schemas in The staging that reaffirm the expressive character of the work. The new rich and their servants are two classes procrastinating with everything in their life. Not dealing with their problems, when they should and delaying it always thereby relating to the essence of the play which is ‘Come back tomorrow’. The masters of the house, even after having money and materialistic things, still seek for something more in their life and want to be like their servants who are not rich but still most importantly, happy with their lives. We plan to keep a universal setting, not bound by any cultural setting. Costumes are to be planned in such a way that they reflect their identities and their emotional feeling. For Eg: Just a basic idea, Sadness can be represented by black and happiness by white..

About the author: Gloria Fuertes (Madrid, July 28, 1917 - Madrid, November 27, 1998) writer of narrative, poetry, theater and prolific author of children's and youth literature. Her interest in writing began at the early age of five, when she was already writing and drawing her own short stories. She published her first poem at only fourteen in 1932, titled “Childhood, youth, old age”. In the 1940s she began her foray into the professional literary world. In the first five years some of her children's plays and poems staged in several theaters in Madrid stood out. She began working as an editor in the children's magazine Maravillas (from 1939 to 1953) where she published weekly stories,
comic books and poetry. In 1942 she met Carlos Edmundo de Ory, integrating in the poetic movement called Postism, actively participating in the magazines Postismo and Cerbatana with Ory, Eduardo Chicharro and Silvano Sernesi. She also collaborated in another magazine, Chicas (from 1940 to 1945), publishing humor stories, and in the newspaper Arriba with the Coletas and Pelines comics. Alongside this, she founded the group Versos with skirts next to Maria Dolores de Pueblos and Adelaida Lasantas, dedicated during two years to offer recitals and readings by the bars and cafes of the capital. In 1950 Pirulí published, two years after her first play in verse Prometheus that takes the Valle-Inclán prize, and in 1954 throws Anthology Poetics and Poems of the suburb.
During these first years of the decade she organized a children's library for small towns with the desire to tackle illiteracy, and founding together with Antonio Gala, Rafael Mir and Julio Mariscal the poetic magazine Arquero, which she directed until 1954. From 1955 to 1960 she studied Library Science and English at the International Institute. In 1960 she traveled for three years to the USA after obtaining a Fullbirght scholarship to teach Spanish literature at Bucknell University, Mary Baldwin College and Bryn Mawr College. In 1972 she received a scholarship from the Juan March Foundation for Children's Literature, which allowed her to devote herself entirely to literature.
Two new titles were added to her poetic work: Alone at home and When you learn geography (1973). Halfway through the decade she receives the Hans Christian Andersen award for children’s literature for Cangura, marking her as one of the best authors of children’s literature. She also collaborated on several programs of children's literature of TVE, the most popular being “A balloon, two balloons, three balloons” and “The white kite” that, together with her compositions of children's song lyrics, designate her as the children's poet. She also writes for the magazines Quail and Discóbolo. Throughout the 80s Gloria Fuertes is unstoppable and intense: readings, interviews, radio, tributes, newspapers, trips, visits to schools and constant publications. They emphasize her stories for children: La pájara pint (1972), La gata chundarata and other stories (1974), The mummy has a sore throat (1978), The squirrel and its gang (1980), Cocoloco pocoloco The Coquette Giraffe (1986). The whole of Gloria Fuertes' work is characterized by the irony with which she treats such universal themes as love, loneliness, the pain of death. The metaphors, the linguistic games and the fresh and simple character that put to the songs of a great musicality and cadence close to the oral language appear. Her lyrical accent is one of the most personal, authentic and distinctive among contemporary poets.
