There is no disputing Tim Mcarthur’s skill as a writer and Guy Retallack’s masterful direction in bringing this drama to the stage. This is a very slick play with contemporary staging where the overlapping and very believable dialogue between the five actors adds to the menacing quality of some of the scenes; especially between David Archer, who plays the rather gullible Stephen, and Lewis Rae, who plays control freak Jeremy with an air of pure villainy. Mcarthur deals with issues of emotional supply and demand, pressures of society, possession, snobbery, manipulation and exactly how much advice do you take from your mother and best friend? As the twists and turns of the drama are played out the whole pace increases to a finale that will take your breath away. Gripping stuff!
