Honour $12.99

Joanna Murray-Smith

Published by Nick Hern Books

3 Male 1 Female

A painful and humane play about infidelity from an exciting new Australian writer, published alongside the premiere at the National Theatre in February 2003

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

The fallout is dreadful - but beautifully and convincingly portrayed in all its painful consequences...

Originally performed in Melbourne, Australia, Honour is impressively truthful about the enormity of betrayal. It cannot fail to move anyone who has ever put their trust in another human being. 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
