Unit Set/Multiple Settings

High-profile premiere at National Theatre for painful and humane infidelity play from an exciting new Australian writer Gus and Honor have been happily married for thirty-two years. She is a successful writer, he is a revered columnist. They have a perfect understanding of each other. Until a pushy young female journalist - on an assignment to 'profile' Gus - quite deliberately seeks to undermine that understanding. The fallout is dreadful - but beautifully and convincingly portrayed in all its painful consequences...Originally performed in Melbourne, Australia, and now due for its British premiere at the National Theatre in London, Honour is impressively truthful about the enormity of betrayal. It cannot fail to move anyone who has ever put their trust in another human being. Ranking alongside Peter Nichols' Passion Play and Tom Stoppard's The Real Thing, Joanna Murray-Smith's account of the erring male is seen - refreshingly - from the perspective of the wronged woman.
"HONOUR makes for surprisingly interesting viewing. Tight, crackling dialogue (usually played out in punchy verbal duels) captures characters unable to deal with emotions…Murray-Smith effectively places her characters in situations that strip away pretense." —Variety. "…the play's virtues are strong: a distinctive theatrical voice, passionate concerns…HONOUR might just capture a few honors of its own." —Time Out NY.
