Author(s): David Williamson
A fast-moving, wise-cracking commentary on contemporary urban mores and morals, and the rivalries and passions to be encountered on the road to success. Colin, a screenwriter, and his wife Kate, a publisher, move to the 'Emerald City', where fame and fortune are there for the taking, but surprises are in store for them both. Sharp-edged, satirical and accusatory, this play lays into the materialism of the 1980s with a razor wit. Within four months of its premiere, five separate productions had opened around Australia. (3 male, 3 female).
