About the play
This Australian drama follows the case that begins when recently fired Susy Connor files a formal complaint with the Anti-Discrimination Tribunal about an alleged incident in which her employer Gary Fitzgerald sexually molested her while working late one night. The married Gary, calls Susy a liar. Marion, the mediator, is called in to find the truth. Both parties have credible character witnesses, and at the same time, both have gaping holes in their stories. Susy, herself, with her sexy dressing, provocative ways, and her openness about an active sex-life, is not an obvious victim, while Gary is famed for his macho posturing around the office and his womanizing.
The Playwright, David Williamson, is a master of meaningful, punchy, and funny dialogue, and not one word is superfluous. The play develops with sharp interchanges, change of focus, and unexpected turns.
