Colin is a one-time gun screenwriter who’s off his
game these days, and his wife Kate is a publisher
with a penchant for taking risks. Seduced by the
scent of success, they move their family to the
Emerald City in pursuit of a share of its fame and
Colin teams with a hack writer to work on his pet
project screenplay, but soon finds himself faced
with a stark choice: make art or make a motza?
Decades after it was written, David Williamson’s
1987 classic is as sharp as ever; a satirical
skewering of the extravagance of yesterday that
could have been written today.
