AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A premiere Australian play based on actual events, showing just how startling real-life can be.

Mary-Ellen Field is a successful Australian business consultant in London – until she’s accused of betraying the secrets of her clients to the press. Her life comes crashing down, and she starts to wonder if she’s losing her mind. Then it emerges that her phone was being illegally tapped by reporters, and she sets out on a campaign to restore her reputation.

But along the way, her ideas of redemption change – she’s been interviewed by a journalist on the other side of the world, and his story puts everything into a new perspective.' (Production summary)
