“I’m lucky to have this job. Pays pretty well and I get a place to live. Looking after a scrungy old drunk is dead-set the best job I’m gonna get.”
Leo Bailey is Australia’s greatest living artist. His house is a fabulous hovel, built into a cliff over-looking Sydney Harbour.
Mr. Bailey is incapacitated, his brain burned out by booze. His resentful daughter has been through a succession of minders. But along comes Therese, down to her last job and determined to make a go of it.
In this tough and funny play, the culture vultures circle and the house disintegrates along with the artist’s body as discoveries are made about the beauty of letting go.
“One of the best-written and realised works for theatre of the year. This is life-enhancing, wildly funny, wonderfully entertaining and you’ll have a bit of a cry, too” Sunday Telegraph
