Overview

Without A Trace & Other Plays is a collection of 4 award-winning full-length very different plays:

Without a Trace is the story of a famous blind pianist, Maria von Paradies, for whom Mozart wrote his 18th concerto. Maria is "cured" by the charismatic Dr Mesmer but tragically when she loses her sight she is unable to play the piano. It takes place just before a major concert in Vienna.

The Accident takes place in a bare room where a woman who does not know who she is and does not recognze her surroundings is given an "identity" and told not to question anything.

A Safe Place is a psychological mystery about an anthropologist who leaves his two daughters in a boarding school, goes off to do fieldwork in a tribal society, and returns to find one daughter has joined a cult and the other won't speak. He must reconstruct what happened in his absence.

Territorial Rites explores the relationship between a demanding, dying, anti-Semitic mother and her school teacher daughter who still lives at home. Her sister returns home and all hell breaks loose.

Collectively the plays take one on a deeply insightful journey of the human condition.
