Leo Bailey is one of Australia’s greatest living artists, whose genius battles to survive the effects of alcohol, cynicism and self-loathing.
Only one of his many children, his daughter Margo, is prepared to help, but she does so at arm's length. Margo finds a live-in-minder, Therese who is fresh out of prison and desperate for a home. Then along comes Karl, a handyman who has the job of removing a valuable mural but who keeps returning with offers of practical friendship.
A funny and deeply moving play about friendship, ego, art and the secret longing for a better life.
"Like her character Leo Bailey, playwright Debra Oswald reveals the luminous inner beauty of ordinary men and women emotionally scarred by life." - Mark Hopkins, Sydney Morning Herald
