SYNOPSIS
The central character is George, successful, overworked architect, with a willful daughter Fiona, a talented but unfulfilled wife, Joanna, a secretary whose efficiency and loyalty cover a deeper passion, and an urbane business partner who recommends to George a therapeutic affair to take his mind off all his pressures. Along comes Gina , beautiful, clever, and on the face of it aggressively feminist,to fill this prescription.
But this play is no average Knockabout farce, and the complications that ensure raise thought-provoking questions on the easy assumptions we tend to make about modern manners. Where, for instance, does Gina’s feminism come into the heart and soul commitment she demands from George? What triggers Joanna’s drinking- frustration(sexual or artistic) or simply lack of loving kindness? George’s charm may be strong enough to command a remarkable degree of loyalty…but his teenage daughter understands what lies beneath the charm…
