At the heart of the piece is the character of THE WRITER, a woman who sets out to create groundbreaking stage work free from patriarchal influence. Her struggles with the power dynamics of personal relationships also come under scrutiny.

Meanwhile the audience is co-opted to become spectators for some of her writing as scenes from her work are staged within the play. This postmodern playfulness extends to introducing the character of the Director, which in turn allows the structures of modern theatre making to be exposed and critiqued.
