David Williamson's brilliantly funny satire on the art world opened in Sydney in February 2001 where demand for tickets was so overwhelming that the run was extended and all records were broken.
This bitingly funny comedy delves into the darker recesses of the super-privileged. Focusing on their virtues, vices and ulterior motives, it is a hugely entertaining insight into what makes people tick when money is no object.
When one of Jackson Pollock's finest works slips quietly onto the market, a sharp and ambitious art dealer is determined to make her fortune. Risking everything she has through the course of a tense private auction, she plays off her wealthy clients against each other, manipulating their greed, lust and power as the price of the painting surges.
