Brothers Ian and Ben are on their way to Sydney to visit their recently widowed father. Three big surprises are in store when they arrive at his 75th birthday celebrations.
The ‘Old Man’ is worth $100 million. He’s gone and married Fury, an American beauty queen half his age.
There is no pre-nup…
With his trademark wit and skillful blending of contemporary culture within the ageless framework of family greed, jealousy, love and expectation, Australia’s leading playwright David Williamson has delivered another gripping play and his most memorable characters to date.
Is there more to the beautiful Fury than meets the eye? Is Alan the father he thinks he is? Do Ben’s loyalties lie with his wife, his dad or himself? Can Ian contain his greed long enough to get a signature on the right will? And who is to blame for the death of Ben’s father-in-law?
One thing is for certain: everything changed when Dad married Fury.
Cast of seven includes John Wood.
