High-profile premiere at National Theatre for painful and humane infidelity play from an exciting new Australian writer Gus and Honor have been happily married for thirty-two years. She is a successful writer, he is a revered columnist. They have a perfect understanding of each other. Until a pushy young female journalist - on an assignment to ‘profile’ Gus - quite deliberately seeks to undermine that understanding.

Ranking alongside Peter Nichols' Passion Play and Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing, Joanna Murray-Smith’s account of the erring male is seen - refreshingly - from the perspective of the wronged woman.
