Robert 'Bob' King, an internationally renowned investigative journalist, has returned to his native Australia to retire to the relative isolation of Queensland. But the sanctuary he thought he had found himself is breached by a student who is about to publish King's biography. Conflict erupts between the young idealist and the pragmatic realist as each challenges the other's true values and motivations.
This production toured regional Victorian venues, had a return season at the Merlyn in June, then transferred to Sydney Theatre Company's Wharf Theatre (18 July - 20 August). Also performed at The Playhouse in Canberra (8-15 October).
