'Mathew and Nina have been married for twelve years. He is forty - a successful publisher whose path is littered with the discarded souls of those who tried to keep up. Nina is thirty-eight and a journalist. She hasn't worked since the birth of the children. So when Mathew suggests she takes on a biography of Lawrence Clifford - tycoon, philanthropist and now Australian of the Year - she throws herself into the project with an all-consuming enthusiasm. A play about love, betrayal and sex; of falling in love and getting found out.' (Publisher's blurb, back cover).
