AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Two private school girls are missing in Melbourne’s hinterland. The clock is ticking, the search is on. The one clue is 15-year-old Vivienne. Beguiling, quick-witted, provocative, she won’t give up her secrets easily. What exactly will the police uncover?

'Award-winning playwright Angela Betzien (an STC Patrick White Playwrights’ Fellow) has created a tense, tantalising crime thriller that reveals the mysterious underbelly of a privileged world.'
