Life After Scandal  

Life After Scandal $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST'll see them stuck like insects in amber. Like an Ibsen play... haunted for the rest of their lives

Life After Scandal takes you behind the closed curtains and beyond the reach of the telephoto lenses to explore our paparazzi-infested world from the other side, as those implicated in some of the most notorious scandals of recent years talk frankly about the events which transformed their lives.

This new verbatim play from the writer of Talking To Terrorists and The Arab-Israeli Cookbook uses the subjects’ own words to take an entertaining, compassionate and deeply moving look at the different people, from scorned politicians to powerful PRs, expensive prostitutes to disgraced aristocrats, who find themselves caught up in the modern machinery of scandal.

Superbly funny… full of delights - Guardian
