After an extensive period of writing for film, Louis Nowra returns to the stage with The Boyce Trilogy, an epic saga about the Boyce family, a family made wealthy through property development

The trilogy starts with The Woman with Dog's Eyes which introduces us to the Boyce family as they gather to celebrate the parents' 40th wedding anniversary

Inspired by events that traumatised Sydney's Moran family, the play explores the universal themes of family, love and disappointment

The second part of the trilogy - The Marvellous Boy - unwraps the story of this notorious Sydney family

Malcolm Boyce is dying at a time when his biggest building project - and so his whole empire - is threatened by protesters

And so he hires an important criminal, the charismatic Ray Pollard, to threaten his enemies

Malcolm gets his son, Luke, to liaise with Ray

Luke not only falls under Ray's spell but also finds himself involved with his father's mistress

The results are tragic

This story follows Luke from detachment into an emotional involvement that will be liberating and then shattering as the consequences of his and his father's moral duplicity emerge

In the final instalment of the trilogy - The Emperor of Sydney the three sons fight for control of the company as their father lays dying in the master bedroom above the huge Beauchamp mansion living room

The company is near bankruptcy because of a huge stalled project (their father's personal vision) and they are facing a criminal investigation into the father's role in the suspicious death of the project's outspoken critic
