Audience Member A credible writer leaves one city for another in search of better things and becomes disillusioned with the level of opportunism at the expense of artistic integrity. His cliquey, socialite wife however, has the opposite experience and seems to settle in to her new city a bit too comfortably. This is based on a David Williamson play which is most probably autobiographical and with actors John Hargreaves and Robyn Nevin on board, the script comes alive with energy and verve. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member dated. comically so now. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
