Life After George

Hannie Rayson
 
Peter George, charismatic academic, idealist, lover of life, is dead.  His wife, two ex-wives and daughter gather for his funeral. As the true nature of the man and his life unfolds, so these women discover much about themselves and the lives they have lived both within and outside his shadow.

Life After George
is a moving and perceptive insight into social change across three decades told through individual experiences. From the barricades of the student movements of the late 1960s to the new century with its demands for different educational strategies, the university has been central to change.  And it is on this stage that George played out his brilliant, tempestuous career.

Written with passion and dangerous wit, Life After George is a compelling new drama from the author of Hotel Sorrento.

Life After Scandal

Robin Soans
 
...you'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.
